Add Kalpen Modi (Kal Penn) to the list* of inspiring sociology majors.
Gabriel Rossman posted a video of Modi’s commencement address to sociology students at UCLA.
A degree in sociology is far from useless. The opposite is true. My sociology degree helped prepare me for every job I’ve ever had, and for life in general.
The above frame is just a screen grab. Gabriel (Princeton orange accenting the black gown) is occasionally visible right behind Modi. Watch the entire video on Gabriel’s blog or here. It’s worth listening to, especially if you’re a Sociology undergrad.
