Fordham's sociology & anthropology degree is valuable for students planning careers in diverse fields:

  • social research
  • criminology
  • social psychology
  • public administration
  • education
  • social work

It also provides a useful background for those planning to enter law, other professional fields such as: medicine, community planning, architecture and many others. 

The synthesizing nature of both sociology and anthropology allows it to work well as a double major with other areas of the humanities as well as the natural and social sciences.
