Major: Sociology
Job Title: President and CEO

I was from a small town in western Pennsylvania and wanted to be close enough to go home, but far away enough to "grow up" away from my parents. I looked at many small, private colleges and universities, but Mount Union fit me perfectly.


Sociology is a field that is increasingly being incorporated into the research of other disciplines. Overall, employment of sociologists is expected to grow 22% through 2018, much faster than the average for all occupations, as projected by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Our undergraduate sociology major program will prepare you for an entry-level career after graduation as well as for graduate school. A survey conducted of students graduating from Mount Union from 1976 through 2000 with a degree in sociology indicated that they are pursuing careers in planning analysis, social service program administration, system design, social welfare, federal law enforcement, paralegal, counseling, probation, law, secondary education, private investigating, business management and college teaching. Potential careers for sociology majors include a number of rewarding professions in various fields.
