Our location in the heart of Chicago gives students access to internships,
community-service placements, and field research experiences, as well as the
many opportunities of a global city. With its ethnic diversity and global
economic dynamism, Chicago serves as a unique setting for research, public
service, and career development.
The application of sociological methods, ideas, and practices allows for career paths in fields such as public health, law and law
enforcement, non-profit and community-service agencies, the media, government,
and research organizations. Many of our alumni pursue professional degrees in areas
that include law, public health, criminal justice, social work, public policy,
marketing, and management of businesses and non-profit organizations, as well
as the MA and PhD degrees in sociology.
