Post-Graduation Career: What Will You Do With Sociology?

Economically and socially, social conflicts in various fields are intensifying, and this is also an area that the country is paying a lot of attention to. A 'conflict resolution consultant' who analyzes, manages and resolves various types of conflicts, such as the relationship between companies and workers, the conflict between the upper and lower economic and social classes, the conflict between the older generation and the young generation, and the ideological conflict between the conservatives and the progressives. have.

Government Policy Related Fields

Policies affect society in many ways. When making policies such as event policies, economic policies, medical policies, welfare policies, and immigration policies, a sociologist with a deep and broad perspective on the 'society' to which the policies are applied, as well as those who are fluent in law and economics, must be necessary. For this reason, the Policy Research Institute can also be called a blue ocean.

Trend analysis related fields

Even in a rapidly changing society, trends come and go quickly. Analyzing and predicting upcoming trends is also a good field for sociology majors who are sensitive to real-world issues.

Media-related fields

Those who have studied sociology have a broad understanding of social phenomena, so they can be active as reporters, producers, and anchors in the media fields such as newspapers and broadcasting.

Law-related fields

With the establishment of the law school system, there are no departments that teach law in the undergraduate program. In developed countries such as the United States, there are many cases of majoring in sociology in the undergraduate course to enter law school. In order to grow into a competent lawyer, you need a sense of studying law and social studies in the Department of Sociology.

Data analysis related fields

'Social statistics' and 'social research methods' are particularly important fields. Now that it is more important than ever to build a database using a computer and organize data to make it useful, the demand for those who majored in social statistics in the field of data analysis is increasing.
