The Sociology classes at Austin Peay are small enough that faculty members are able to give students personal attention to help them succeed.
Our graduates have been successful at being admitted to graduate programs at schools such as Vanderbilt University and The University of Tennessee-Knoxville.
The department sponsors an active Sociology Club, which helps the majors and minors to become better acquainted and to participate in service and recreational activities.
A wide variety of career options are open to sociology majors. They can secure jobs in social work and social services, law enforcement, teaching, the ministry, social research and in management positions in private companies.
