Data were collected on the occupations of sociology major graduates between 1965 and 1972 of one university in the Southwest. The great majority had not completed graduate studies. The principal occupations were in public agencies and included social service, teaching, and secretarial-receptionist-clerical positions. Those unemployed were most likely to be married females, the majority of whom had children. The findings suggest the need for review of the educational goals and structure of undergraduate sociology instruction.
