This study has been conducted with the aim of investigating the attitude on status and occupational future of post-graduate students in social sciences. The author has used documentary research method and open interview with post- graduate students of the science and research branch of the Islamic Azad University in all sub-disciplines of sociology. This study seeks to find an answer to the question of examining the attitudes on the future employment status of post-graduate students in social sciences, with the consideration of sociological and psychological theories associated with the main concepts of research. The findings show that post- graduate students in sociology have a relatively positive view of their position and abilities in their future career, and of motivating factors to find the right job with respect to their field of study; these factors consist in acquiring the experience through passing relevant courses and doing occasional projects at the university during study, obtaining expertise through apprenticeship in the specialized and related organizations, as well as the appropriate income. They have also a negative view of the government's performance regarding the provision of appropriate job opportunities, low incomes, and also a disproportionate increase in the students' admission to universities without envisaging their job prospects after graduating.
