Career Paths after B.A. (Hons.) in Sociology

One of the attributes of the B.A. Sociology is the applied focus on Sociology streams. Sociology graduates are highly employable in a range of organisations and professions that engage with social issues directly or indirectly. Graduates are exceptionally prepared to meet the challenges of increasingly globalised professional settings. Sociology graduates often enter the ‘Third Sector’ which involves working with NGOs and not-for-profit organisations, or the education sector through teaching and academic research. In recent times, Sociology degree holders have joined a wide range of professions including the civil service, think-tanks (as researchers and policy analysts), human resources, journalism, the corporate sector and global organisations such as UN agencies.

Individual career paths might include:

  • Environment
  • Consumer Industries- Retail, Advertising and Marketing
  • Media, Communications and Journalism
  • Humanitarian, Non-profit, and Social Work
  • Public Health
  • Education and Education Management
  • Tourism, Travel and Heritage Industries
  • Government, Public Policy and Law
  • Think tanks and Policy-Making
  • Ministries and Entrepreneurship related to Culture

Sociology graduates will also be strong candidates for Indian and international fellowships (e.g., Teach for India, Young India Fellowship) and post-graduate programmes abroad in disciplines such as Development Studies, Gender Studies, Anthropology, Sociology, Cultural Studies, and Geography.
