Many graduate jobs make use of the social insight and skills acquired through the study of sociology. Students go into a wide variety of professions, such as teaching, research, politics, public administration, the social and health services, advertising, journalism, other areas of the media, law, publishing, industry, accounting, marketing, personnel and management.
The annual LSE alumni survey follows up graduates six months after they leave LSE and tracks their employment details and salary levels. See the latest results here: What do Sociology graduates do?
LSE Careers is here to help guide students through the careers maze with a comprehensive range of careers and employment services. They offer careers events, a vacancy board, one-to-one appointments and practice interviews, advice about further study, support if you'd like to set up your own business, and numerous online resources.
The Department of Sociology's dedicated careers advisor is Viki Chinn from LSE Careers. If you need individual guidance you can book one-to-one appointments with Viki or another careers consultant in the team.
The relationship with LSE doesn’t end with graduation: our alumni are strongly encouraged to stay in touch with LSE to ensure they make the most of the full range of alumni services offered by both LSE Careers and Alumni.
