Seattle, WA (PressExposure) November 11, 2011 -- The human animal is a mystifying creature but the study of sociology delves deeply into the hows and whys of human behavior. Students and career-changers alike will find loads of useful information from the newly launched website, SociologyDegreePrograms.org. The Seattle-based website offers pages of useful information that describe the study of sociology and links that provide more details, including types of funding available to students and potential sources for employment after graduation. This website is a must-see for anyone considering the profession.
Describing itself as 'a primer in sociology from theory and major to scholarships and career,' this highly informative website includes pages that describe and define many of the words and phrases involved in the profession and a student guide for sociology majors. Discover how scholarships, grants, awards, and fellowships differ, how to apply for them, and what they can do to help finance a sociology degree, including links to dozens of potential sources of funding.
The tab titled 'Finding a Job in Sociology' provides salary data and describes why the US government forecasts growth in the field to be 'faster than average through 2018' for sociology majors. The 40 links to potential employers is helpful to recent graduates and those who already hold a sociology degree but might be looking for some fresh ideas. The diversity of the list of links is but a sampling of the diversity of job opportunities for students of sociology.
