Careers and your future in Sociology

Our Sociology BSc degrees will open you to a wide range of exciting careers and opportunities. 

Throughout your sociology degree we place emphasis on gaining transferable employment skills in critical thinking, public speaking skills, communication and interaction, teamwork, creative skills and time management to set you in good stead for your future. You will also find that your sociology degree will provide you with practical skills, analytical skills, organisational skills and problem-solving skills and therefore prepare you for the world of work.     

Furthermore, our support doesn’t stop once you leave Brunel. You’ll have access to our Professional Development Centre who can give expert career support and help to prepare you for interviews and assessment centres for up to two year after you graduate.

Our Sociology graduates obtain graduate jobs in a variety of public and private sectors including social work, youth work, healthcare sector, business, consultancy, HR, marketing, teaching, PR and journalism, lobbying, government, international development sector, campaigning and fundraising to name just a few.
