Sociology majors from Beloit College are prepared intellectually and experientially to enter a variety of careers. Many enter occupations in business, industry, and government directly from college. Others pursue additional graduate education at the M.A. and Ph.D. levels.
We have designed several pre-professional career concentrations for (1) graduate study in sociology; (2) social services and administration; (3) criminal justice; (4) law; (5) management and policy studies; (6) health administration; and (7) public school teaching. These concentrations are not majors in themselves; rather a set of courses from sociology and other disciplines that provide sociology majors with suggestions toward a solid liberal arts foundation for a professional career. Other pre-professional career concentrations can be worked out in consultation with a faculty advisor.
