Every day I use Sociology at work. The Sociology department at UBC offers great methods courses, which was a huge reason as to why I was hired. My Sociology training has also given me soft skills that help me add value to my projects. I have a deeper understanding of social circumstances and macrostructures that might be colouring the way our subjects respond.
