Sociology and Anthropology is a great major if you are interested in working with people, either in direct service or at the community or organizational level.

The tools of these disciplines help with communication, planning, organizational thinking, respect, social and cultural analysis, and leadership.

Sociology and anthropology majors are prepared for a wide range of careers dealing with people, cultures, and communities. Students go into careers in law, law enforcement, social justice work, education, social services, political organizing, international development, management, research, community development, museum, and archival work. Many bring their social scientific training to health fields, including public health and public administration, or they become educators. The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects a growth rate for Sociology jobs at 5% between now and 2030, and they also project that jobs for Anthropologists will grow at a rate of 7%.
