What can you do with a sociology degree? watch


    (Original post by ArtGoblin)
    That's the problem with doing sociology - you will get this **** all time. Don't worry about it though; there are plenty of job opportunities. You're probably not going to get a really high paid job, but that's probably the same for a lot of arts graduates. It doesn't mean it's worthless. If you're main motivation is material rewards then it's probably not the right path, but I think it's a really interesting degree so far.
    Not just arts graduates: a science degree doesn't come with a six figure salary guarantee.

    f*** all to be honest.

    A sociology teacher?

    My friend did it then then she had to do another two year social work diploma thing to do social work. I think psychology has a few more prospects..

    ..but not many benny.

    It pretty much just qualifies you to become a graduate.. i.e you can go on to do post-grad or do a grad scheme for a company etc.

    Almost anything!

    Sociology is a great subject, imo, and is a good discipline if you're going into the public sector. It teaches you quite important stuff which can also be relevant to things like human resources, public relations, etc. However, much like psychology, most skills are transferable and most graduates will get a job unrelated to the subject.
