Career perspectives

A wide range of employers recognise the skills a sociology-based degree can give you:

  • a deeper theoretical understanding the complexities of our rapidly changing society
  • how data can inform decision making and the interconnectivity of all the elements that make up a society, such as culture, communications, politics, workers' rights, equality, crime.

All of which is why studying Sociology can open up a range of rewarding career opportunities.

The subject can provide an ideal pathway into careers in market research, social data analysis, policy making, marketing, human resources, teaching and many other roles.

We are one of the oldest and biggest sociology departments in London, and our central location gives you direct access to the learning and cultural resources of a global city.
