Sociology: Make a Difference

The University of West Georgia’s Sociology Program is home to a collaborative and compassionate group of scholars who are committed to student success and serving the local community.

If you want to serve, become an advocate, or effect change in your community, choose Sociology. Take skills-based classes in race, health, gender, poverty, family, globalization, social work, social policy, interview methods, and data analysis. A degree in Sociology will empower you to become an effective leader, advocate, and service-provider in your community and beyond.

Sociology prepares students for careers in social services, government, human resources, and non-profit organizations. Our students go on to become social workers, non-profit administrators, policy analysts, housing counselors, case managers, human resource managers, and other change-making careers.

During their coursework, sociology students interact directly with reliable and trustworthy faculty who move them toward their career goals.
