Adapting to Change

Where students once thought in terms of one career, now an increasingly complex technological and global economy often requires people to pursue a series of careers. Most young adults will explore more than one option before settling on a clear path, and older students may find themselves re-tooling with sociology after a successful career in another field. A liberal arts education and a major in sociology provide the flexibility necessary in today's employment market. Graduate work in sociology can help others shift gears mid-career.

Solid training in sociology at the undergraduate or graduate levels forms a foundation for flexible career development. The better your training and the more skills you have acquired, the better you will be able to take advantage of new opportunities. Sociology offers a rich source of conceptual frameworks into which the most pressing issues of our times can be placed, and a powerful set of methodological tools with which to study them.
