Why study Sociology?

Transferrable skills

Graduates holding a degree in the field of Sociology (as well as many other Social Sciences disciplines) develop a variety of skills which will be useful not only in the area of academic Sociology, but in many other career paths. The list of developed skills include, but is not limited by:

  • Critical thinking and ability to see the situation from different points of view;
  • Strong knowledge background in Statistics;
  • Interviewing skills;
  • Research and analysis skills;
  • Excellent oral and written communication skills;
  • Presentation skills;
  • Ability to meet deadlines and work in collaborations.

The most humane education

The main aim of Sociology is understanding people, all and every and social institutions they create. That is why skills developed and knowledge received because of a degree in Sociology is useful not only in academic practice, teaching or career, but also in “real life”, in relationships with other people, your friends and family, and complete strangers. Of course, not all developed skills can be applied to your closest surrounding, but a degree in Sociology will still give you a chance to understand them better.

Diverse education opportunities

Since Sociology is one of the main Social Sciences discipline, it can be combined with other (more or less specific) education. Students often choose joint degrees in Sociology with Computer Science, Applied Mathematics, Psychology, Anthropology, Philosophy, Statistics, foreign languages or culture - it depends on their academic and career interests. Curricula in most study programs in rather flexible, so students can undertake courses in disciplines they are interested in, even from other departments.
