Career Information by Major

Students and recent graduates are often surprised to learn that most degrees have tremendous crossover potential. People are most certainly not constrained to careers within their discipline. Geography graduates work in marketing, political science graduates work in human resources, business graduates become teachers, religion and culture graduates work in sales, and sociology graduates work in finance. In fact, it is probably more common to find people working outside their field of study than within it.

Studies show that employers look for specific competencies in their employees: 

  • Communication
  • Collaboration and teamwork
  • Adaptability and resiliency
  • Critical thinking and problem-solving
  • Functional knowledge and more!

The list below will provide you with information about career options based on your program or major. You can learn about career areas to explore, outcomes of Laurier graduates from your program, career resources, and details about the functional knowledge and other competencies you will develop in your program. Print versions of your program's career overview are available in the Career Centre.
