Welcome back to the Department of Sociological Studies!
As a former student at the University of Sheffield, your relationship with the Department of Sociological Studies doesn’t end when you graduate. We like to maintain strong links with our former students and staff, so please do keep in touch with us - whether you graduated only recently or whether you graduated some time ago, we’d love to hear from you!
Keep in touch
There are a number of ways you can keep in touch with both the Department and your former classmates and colleagues:
- Register as a member of the Department of Sociological Studies alumni.
- Keep up-to-date with what is happening in the Department via our news page.
- Join the Department of Sociological Studies alumni network on LinkedIn.
- Like us on Facebook.
- Follow us on Twitter.
- View our Departmental videos on YouTube.
Tell us your news
We’re always interested in hearing what our alumni have been getting up to. If you would like to share details of your career path since graduation with us, or any other exciting news you may have, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with details. We are looking for articles 250-300 words long, ideally with a photograph.
There are many ways you can still be involved with the Department of Sociological Studies. As well as sharing with us your news and graduate testimonials, which can inspire recent graduates and current students, you could also volunteer at the University of Sheffield – it’s a fantastic way to stay connected to the University whilst making a huge difference to current and prospective students.
You could become involved by taking part in career talks and events aimed at current students, or by mentoring, which could involve giving feedback on a student project or offering advice to a student with similar career aspirations to your own. You may also wish to take part in specialist skill or expertise masterclasses and workshops.
Meet our alumni
Some of our recent graduates work in journalism, marketing, human resources, non-governmental organisations (NGOs), local government and health services. Others have forged careers as teachers, police officers, social workers and market researchers, to name just a few destinations.
