Future opportunities

Sociology is not a vocational subject in the sense of providing direct training for a particular occupation. It is however, a good qualification for those wishing to go on to Higher Education courses in Humanities and Social Sciences.

Sociology is a relevant subject for students thinking of working with people, e.g. teaching, social work, Police, civil service, criminology and journalism.

A broad range of possible careers makes Sociology a good choice for those who want to keep their options open.
