Nancy Steinmetz earned her MA in sociology in 2012 and is currently a part-time lecturer in the Department of Sociology at UofL. Nancy tell us, "As a “non-traditional” student, I returned to U of L to complete my undergraduate degree after 30 years (U of L and I were on a break), and it was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I completed my undergraduate degree [in sociology] in 2009 then went into the graduate program for my master’s...My master’s thesis focus was crime and victimization and an abbreviated version of my research was published in The Journal of Criminal Justice shortly after I [graduated]...Sociology in general helped me see society/societies in a more organized and thoughtful way. One may ask, “What can I do with a sociology degree?”…to which I would answer, there isn’t a field of work where a sociology degree isn’t relevant, applicable, or even needed. The ideas, concepts, and foundations that students of sociology acquire, can be used in every type of employment opportunity."
