According to the University of Arkansas, "Sociology is a valuable liberal arts major for students planning careers in a wide variety of fields including public administration, demography, social psychology, guidance and counseling, gerontology, education, rehabilitation, social work, market research, foreign service, business, community planning, architecture, politics and law. Similarly, criminal justice studies can provide a foundation for careers in criminology, law and law enforcement, rehabilitation, research, and security among others. Exposure to social theory, method and analysis provides majors in both areas who want to pursue graduate work with a strong academic background."

"The Department of Sociology and Criminology offers a major leading to a Bachelor of Arts degree in Sociology. Sociology is a comprehensive liberal arts degree that provides an excellent foundation and springboard for working in today's diverse social, organizational and business environments. The Sociology major provides marketable skills in research, theory, and data analytics and knowledge related to social institutions, interactions, cultures, social inequality, and organizations."

The Department of Sociology and Criminology also offers a Master's program which "has an exceptionally strong graduate faculty and a student to faculty ratio of four to one, permitting more individual interaction toward attaining the student's goal."
