img 1 The MA in applied sociology enables graduates to get a competitive edge by learning assessment, diagnostic, evaluation, and intercultural communication skills, and by gaining important insights into diversity in the workplace and society, all of which many employers seek in their hiring/promoting. Because these skills and knowledge are of great value in virtually every occupational field, this Master’s program has demonstrated appeal in a variety of professional settings. These include, but are not limited to, departments of human resources or research and planning in banking, corporations, education, government, healthcare, insurance, marketing, and community and other nonprofit organizations.
