What Can I Do with a Degree in Social Science?

Social scientists study humans, human culture, and the relationship between humans and their environment. In other words, the total human experience is the field of study for the social scientist. Some areas outside of Academics where social scientists might find employment are:

  • Community Planning
  • International Relations
  • Manpower Research and Analysis
  • Civil Rights Analysis
  • Public Health Program Specialist
  • Industrial Specialist
  • Criminology/Penology
  • Social Ecology
  • Urban Sociology
  • Social Pathologist
  • Social Work
  • Foreign Agricultural Affairs
  • Manpower Development
  • Employee Relations
  • Consumer Safety
  • Community Development
  • Industrial Sociology
  • Social Problems Specialist
  • Demography, and
  • Social Welfare Research.

The student who wishes to pursue a graduate degree in Sociology, Social Work, Psychology, Political Science, or any of the subfields in these disciplines would be prepared with a degree in Social Science.

Companies That Have Employed Social Scientists

“No field of study is more important to human beings than the social sciences. To understand society is to learn not only the conditions that limit ourselves, but also the opportunities open to us for improving the human condition. Increasing our knowledge of human society is as important as learning more about mathematics, physics, chemistry or engineering, for unless we can develop societies in which human beings can live happy, meaningful, and satisfying lives, we cannot reap the benefits from learning how to make better automobiles and skyscrapers, traveling in space, or constructing faster computers.” – Hunt and Colander, Social Science: An Introduction to the Study of Society
