What do you think is most important about your Sociology courses?They gave me a new way of thinking about the world how systems and institutions affect us in ways some might not understand.

Plans for after graduation: I want to get a good job with benefits where I will be able to not only support myself but also continue my education.

What advice do you have for other sociology majors or students considering sociology? Things we discuss in sociology not only apply to your everyday jobs but also help you explain things about the everyday world and how or why people may react a certain way to something.
