If the study of human lives, societal changes and social causes and consequences interest you, then a major in sociology at Troy University is for you.
As a sociology student, you will learn about all aspects of human interactions, including cohabitation, divorce, sexual variations, causes and impact of crime, aging of the population, the strained health care system, salary inequities based on race or gender, alcohol and drug abuse and our relationships with economic and political systems.

Your studies will develop your understanding of the impact you have on society.
