About Social Science

The Division of Social Sciences at Troy University is dedicated to the pursuit of academic excellence, the notion of freedom of inquiry and the goal of providing an outstanding education to the students of Troy. The faculty within the division accomplishes these tasks by way of their scholarship, their teaching and their service to others.  

The Division of Social Sciences is committed to providing students with a diverse array of learning experiences that are rooted within engaged learning practices. Members of the Division are a community of scholars with distinct but complimentary backgrounds in the academic disciplines of anthropology, geography, social science education and sociology. The faculty uses their knowledge to equip students for the challenges and responsibilities they will face in an increasingly globalized world. Thus the penultimate mission of the Division of Social Sciences is to prepare students for success in their careers and their personal lives as they move from the collegiate environment into the larger world.
