Sociology Pre-Major

Sociology is the study of people in their relationships with other people, particularly in a group setting. It is closely related and intertwined with the other social sciences. Sociology majors generally choose careers where they work with people. Their understanding of interpersonal relationships makes them good administrators, managers, counselors, probation/parole officers, public relations specialists, social workers, community organizers, and teachers. Additionally, they may use their knowledge and skills in writing, editing, teaching and other communication fields.
