A degree in sociology
Students earning a degree in sociology graduate with important career competencies including critical thinking skills, complex problem solving, information literacy, quantitative reasoning, self-awareness, and effective oral and written communication. Sociologists use a range of quantitative, qualitative, and experimental techniques and theoretical lenses to understand complex human behaviors, social problems, and inequities and use this knowledge to advance careers in medicine, law, public policy, government, business, academia, and the non-profit sector.
AGRADE sociology spotlight: Jason Smith
Because of the AGRADE program, I was able to maximize my time and money spent at WSU. It also helped tremendously in making the jump from undergraduate to graduate school a breeze. The most rewarding part was when I officially enrolled in the graduate school and I only had 16 credits left until completion.
