What can you do with a social sciences degree?

Social science majors can pursue a diverse range of careers such as child psychologist, urban planner, copyright lawyer, global trade researcher, political press agent, broadcast journalist, human resource professional, reading specialist and social worker.

Our social science alumni work in a variety of industries, from public relations and media to medicine and education, and from consulting firms and museums to government agencies and nonprofit organizations. Jobs in social science span a variety of disciplines, but what they have in common is a focus on understanding human behavior and interactions, and a commitment to leaving the world better than they found it.
