    Is a Sociology degree worthless?

    It seems like you can do almost anything with that degree.

    Administration, Manager, Human Resources, Social Work, Probation Officer, Law school, Professor, Highschool/middleschool/elementary teacher...


    Any of you graduate with this degree or are currently majoring in it?

    Sociology on its own is worthless. It can supplement other degrees well.

    One of my friends dropped out of psychology and finished with a BA in sociology instead. He's enjoying his job at a convenience store. He's into qualitative research because he's afraid of crunching numbers, so this probably feels like a field study in poverty to him.

    Seems like your friend wasn't prepared for college. It would be hard for anyone to land any kind of job with an assumed low GPA (seeing as how he dropped out of another BA program)

    actually...it's all about how you MARKET your major...

    a major is just a certain number of courses you take (8 or more usually)

    a sociology major could still take some basic business or econ courses and be attractive for certain jobs...

    a business major who expects to be hired by a fortune 500 just b/c he majored in business but cant market himself is worthless...

    i agree. on it's own, you probably qualify for a job as a social worker. get an MBA in addition, though, and the world of business opens up. good luck.

    Not worthless, but I certainly wouldn't pay or take out student loans for that degree. If you can go for free then sure.

    If you get into social work with a bachelors degree, get ready to live modestly. Take it up a notch with a masters degree that gets you into a more focused field, that's the way to go.

    Any of you graduate with this degree or are currently majoring in it?

    You can get a number of decent paying human services jobs with a degree in sociology. I hope you enjoy working with people, because you'll be working with the worst.

If he decides to go into the military, he'll be qualified to become to an officer. It's not the greatest degree to have to find work with, but if that's all that interests him then that's better than not going at all. It's my opinion that if you can go to college on someone else's dollar then go. If you're paying for it yourself, then think very hard about if the debt is worth the degree.

    People are having hard enough times getting jobs already. Don't waste your time with some liberal arts fluff major. People aren't wowed by liberal arts majors. Yea you might get a good job, but thats cause you it'll be through connections. A sociology major isn't going to buff up your resume.

    OP,

    For the most part... the only people who tell you that sociology degrees are a good idea are other sociology majors. I had friends that took it as a major in college... and none found jobs they wanted.

    Here's a pretty good rule of thumb for college majors... if its the type of major where people say "you can pretty much do anything with a degree in _______" (which is what you often hear about sociology) it's pretty much a worthless degree if you are using it to find a job after college.

    Why would a job hire someone who can do a little bit of everything when they can hire someone who can do just the one thing they need to be done very good.?

    yeah some people are lucky enough to be able to get soemthing going with a, well lets face it, a weak major, but the idea is to give yourself the best chance as possible to land a decent job.

    when your potential manager looks at your degree and see your degree type, it's nice if you can get them to think, "ah Finance, good good, now lets see what else he/she can bring to the table"

    you just stand a better chance with a stronger major, but if you are creative and willing to work your butt off, you can still make something happen with the sociology.
