Sociology graduates are in great demand for their
combination of thorough insights in society, research
expertise, communication and project management skills.
Ghent University Sociology graduates start an academic
career (as PhD students or research fellows) or work in
ngos, governmental organisations (on themes such as
health prevention and radicalisation) and research
departments (such as market research). The programme
prepares you for work on scholarly projects in academia,
governmental organisations or research institutes. You will
be able to research social phenomena such as social
inequity, gender differences, quality of labour,
democratisation of higher education, migration or health and
risk behaviour. Our programme also prepares students for
future careers as policy advisors or project managers in
human resources, journalism or education.
