A bachelor's degree in sociology is a flexible degree that can lead to any number of career paths. Most sociology majors go on to work in social services such as counseling or case management. Others go on pursue a law degree after finishing with their undergraduate schooling or may even find a job in a business or a nonprofit organization doing marketing or human resources.
"A degree in sociology gives a foundation of critical thinking, creativity, writing, and analyzing empirical evidence to better understand the complex problems and trends of an increasingly globalized social world," says Sam Mazany, editor at Nonprofit Colleges Online. "A liberal arts education in sociology can be a segway into further schooling or a wide variety of jobs, depending on where a student's creative talents and interests lead. Whatever one's career goals, Nonprofit Colleges Online hopes that this ranking will help prospective students with what can often be the daunting task of finding the right online degree program.
