Social Sciences

Welcome to the homepage for the Division of Social Sciences.  The social sciences includes several different disciplines that analyze society and the world around us.  At Troy University, there are three core disciplines within the Division of Social Sciences.  These include Anthropology, Social Science Education, and Sociology.

Studying the social sciences uniquely prepares you for life in the 21st  Century.  A degree in the social sciences will teach you the latest research methods to address today’s social problems in this increasingly multicultural and digitized era. We offer professional training in analytical software such SPSS and GIS.  We also provide multiple hands-on research opportunities such as archaeological digs, focus group research in the community, applied sociological research projects, GIS mapping projects, and other community-based experiential learning projects.

Our numerous course offerings within the Division of Social Sciences are taught at the Troy home campus, the Troy Dothan campus, the Troy Montgomery Campus, and the Troy Online campus.  We also offer a world class Masters in Social Science (M.S.Sc) degree program.
