Sociology showcase Wednesday
The UW-Parkside Sociology Club is asking--and answering--the question: "What can you do with a Sociology Degree?" during a special program Wednesday, May 2, from 5-7 p.m. in room D137 of Molinaro Hall on campus.
Citing an impressive group of people like the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Nobel Peace Prize winner Emily Balch, former U.S. President Ronald Reagan, Saul Alinsky, called the father of community organizing; and Xiaotong Fei, vice president of the Congress of China as holders of degrees in sociology, the club is inviting you to explore the career possibilities open to those in the major.
"There are many career opportunities out there for sociology majors. But, you need to know areas of job interest, potential employers who hire in those area, and strategies [including classes to take, experience to gain, how to apply, etc.] to get that job," Club members say. "So, please come to the end-of-year gathering sponsored by the UW-Parkside Sociology Club to find out what can you do with your degree."
After registration, a social, and a welcome from Sociology/ Anthropology chair Laura Khoury from 5 to 5:35 p.m., the evening's agenda is:
