Graduates of sociology are employed in fields such as college and public school teaching, rehabilitation counseling, social casework, urban planning, public relations, and personnel administration. They also work in college admissions, law, law enforcement, multicultural affairs, corrections, radio broadcasting, crisis intervention, and drug and alcohol therapy.

Anthropologists are in demand in fields such as market research, business and education. Because anthropologists are trained to examine, analyze and think critically about culture, and because culture is everywhere there are humans, anthropologists find themselves working in any number of occupations. Anthropologists also work in museums, in international organizations such as UNICEF and the World Bank, in high-tech firms such as Intel and Microsoft, and in governmental organizations such as the U.S. State Department.
