Teaching and conducting research continues to be the dominant career path among professional sociologists today. However, careers in applied fields are growing both in number and significance. Outside of academia, professional sociologists embark upon careers in corporate, non-profit and government worlds as directors of research, policy analysts, program managers, community developers, criminologists and many others.
