Sociology and Anthropology Careers

A Sociology or Anthropology BA at Mason prepares you for a wide range of careers. The research skills, critical thinking, and strong writing that you develop as a sociology or anthrobology major are highly valued by prospective employers.

We encourage you to connect early with University Career Services, sign up for Handshake (Mason's career portal) and meet with the career advisors. University Career Services frequently holds events on putting together resumes, preparing for interviews, and planning for graduate school.

To further develop marketable skills and gain experience, look for opportunities to conduct independent or collaborative research and take advantage of internship opportunities.
