Sometimes people feel trapped in “the system” by life’s circumstances. When that happens, they need compassionate advocates who can help them overcome those issues. That’s where your degree in sociology, social work or criminology pays off. Though the majors are distinct, they all require compassionate hearts and a sharp understanding of the ways our governments handle crime, justice and societal concerns.
All majors give you a firm grounding in research, theory and your chosen career’s best professional practices. You’re encouraged to become an advocate for people you serve, as your career will likely work with disenfranchised minorities, crime victims, low-income families and others who need assistance to better their lives.
(I REALLY STRUGGLED TYING THESE THREE MAJORS TOGETHER IN A WAY A 17-YEAR OLD WOULD UNDERSTAND. IF THIS ISN’T ACCURATE, COULD SOMEONE PROVIDE BETTER WORDING USING FCS AS A MODEL? MY GOAL IS TO SAY THE THREE MAJORS ALL FOCUS ON SYSTEMS THAT AFFECT EVERYDAY LIFE, BUT IN DISTINCT WAYS, THEN QUICKLY GIVE A 30,000-FOOT SUMMARY OF EACH.)
