What Do Social Scientists Do? Sociology
This Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) resource gives information about careers related to sociology. It starts with a definition, explaining the ways in which sociologists study the effects of social issues and the way society is organised. The resource then lists career possibilities for sociologists using their analytical and critical thinking skills, and their sympathetic approach to people's needs. It also gives information about societies and ESRC-funded research centres (note that links within individual pdf files may no longer work but the organisations listed may be found using an external search).
ESRC is a part of Research Councils UK (RCUK).
