want to do with my life. It has taken me a while to figure what my niche is since I’ve
been in college. Before declaring sociology as a major, I was a business major. I have
always had a strong interest in business, but as I progressed with the program, it became
evident to me that I have no interest in working in corporate America. I realized that I
would much rather become and entrepreneur and discover new ways to help people. After
reading up on sociology, I saw that sociology offers you knowledge that translates across
the board, whereas business is more one-dimensional.
Math has always been a weakness of mine, and luckily, sociology only requires
one class. Although that shouldn’t be a major selling point, it definitely was for me!
While I’m aware that sociology is by no means easy, it is certainly a relief to know that I
will no longer be tested on information that I feel is totally useless to me. I struggled in
the majority of my math related classes while I was a business major, and that was quite
depressing for me. After much debate, I decided that I would probably be best if I opted
for a career course that did not include anti-derivatives and the Pythagorean theorem!
People skills are integral part of any organization, and sociology provides you
with the information to perfect them. By studying how people work and interact, I will
be more effective in whatever career path I choose to take. Sociology will enhance
whatever knowledge and experience I have concerning people skills because I will be
more aware of how to reach people on a more personable level.
