Sociology

Many majors elect to enter graduate study in sociology.  Others move into careers in business, education, law, public administration, social work, counseling, museum studies, and criminal justice.  For example, one recent graduate is working as a career counselor at Georgetown University; another is an associate attorney in a law firm; others have titles ranging from medical social worker to college librarian to bank manager.

Anthropology

Some our our majors elect to enter graduate study in anthropology and to obtain their M.A. or Ph.D. in this field, but many others pursue careers in education, international development, law, social work, public administration, business, English as a Second Language (ESL), counseling, medicine, or museum studies.  For example, one graduate is in charge of historic preservation for the state of South Carolina; another is director of international services at John Hopkins University; still another is assistant to the editorial director at St. Martin's Press.
