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."
