Sociology departments have not always been good at promoting their field as a tenable option for an undergraduate major. However, with a focus on the scientific and critical analysis of the structure of society and its institutions, it is a field with a wide scope of applicability. Those graduating with an undergraduate degree in sociology are pursuing careers in fields as diverse as the social services, counseling, administration, management, and marketing. While pursuing very different vocational paths, what sociology undergraduates have in common is very high rates of reported job satisfaction. Moreover, those aspiring to research careers in the social sciences will find an undergraduate sociology degree a valuable foundation for further graduate work in sociology and related disciplines. If affordability is one of your primary concerns in choosing a degree program then an online degree, and these programs in particular, are going to be compelling options.
