    Sociology is the systematic study of human society, social groups, and social interaction. Majors in the traditional sociology track graduate with the skills and knowledge needed for entry-level positions in a variety of fields. For example, sociologists are employed by agencies at all levels of government, have positions in the business world, and work for nonprofit organizations. In addition, undergraduate sociology training provides an excellent basis for graduate education in many specialized areas.
