Sociology

Career Options

A degree in Sociology opens many doors. Sociology graduates possess skills that are in demand and it is on the acquisition of these skills that your studies will focus. It is difficult to imagine a career that would not be enhanced by the craft of critical thinking, the ability to ask questions, a genuine appreciation and understanding of the perspectives of others, the recognition that we are history makers and are therefore responsible for our acts, and by the discipline of reflecting on your life in relation to the collectives of which you are a member: your family, friends, work, faith, and country.

Sociology students and graduates of Augustana can be found working in a variety of occupations from graduate studies and law school to teaching and research.
