As a sociology major, you're required to participate in a semester-long internship. This internship is designed to give you experience in the sociology field before graduation and help you decide what area of the profession you'd like to go into. You'll also complete academic work along with your internship hours.
The sooner you start looking into your options the better. Start planning for your internship at least a semester before. Allow yourself time to find your internship, get it approved by your advisor and get all of the details settled before you start.
