Pre-Professional Course Concentrations

Several career-lines require education beyond the undergraduate degree. A major in sociology can be an effective stepping-stone on your way to a professional career. Business, law, medical, and other professional schools do not look for narrow specialists; they are more interested in applicants with a broad education and proven abilities to think analytically. If you aspire to a professional career, we will work with you and the advisors in your pre-professional area to design a program that meets your needs. Here are some ideas about how to put together a pre-professional education at Duke using sociology courses.
