Employment Resources and Professions Available to Sociology Graduates

A degree in sociology is valuable to many employers since there is a high demand for employees with practical research skills, in addition to critical thinking and writing skills. Sociologists are found in all tiers of government, including administration, management, statistics gathering, and data collection. They can work in any field that specializes in the understanding of people: for example they can work in economic development, as legislative aides, community affairs, urban planning, foreign service, human rights, and in politics.

Sociologists can also stay in academia and teach sociology, economics, political science, and psychology while at the same time doing research. With an additional teaching degree they can teach social studies or economics at the high school level.

Some sociologists go in to criminology and work for various law enforcement agencies such as the RCMP or the local police department. They can also work in the larger community in industrial and labour relations, social services, and policy research. They can also work with the homeless, in pubic health, rural outreach, and family therapy. Sociologists are also employed by private businesses where their skills in understanding people and societal differences makes them invaluable in human resources, market research, and public relations.

A degree in sociology can also be used for entry to law, business, social work, teaching, and the ministry.
