The Sociology B.A. degree will also prepare you for entry into graduate programs in a wide variety of fields, such as applied archeology, counseling, education, law, public affairs, social work, and sociology.
When applying to graduate or professional schools, you'll need letters of recommendation from faculty members who are familiar with your work. Make a practice of attending office hours early in your academic career to get to know your professors and discuss your options for advanced study in the field.
