Alumni Profiles

Sociology concentrators pursue diverse careers that draw upon the ideas and concepts they discussed and debated over their four years of undergraduate study. The rigorous analytical skills and the ability for critical thinking, which they developed through their course work, has prepared them to address real world challenges that range from wrestling with major organizational problems, to figuring out how to better serve and educate the country’s children, to addressing important social issues such as HIV/AIDS. 

Through the following profiles we would like to introduce you to some of the many extraordinary alumnae and alumni of Harvard’s undergraduate program in Sociology and their plans upon graduation. If you are interested in reaching one of our graduates, please be in touch with Laura Thomas who will be able to assist you.
