Ahh the masses. Isn’t it interesting how sometimes people act one way in a group and differently when they’re alone? Would you be interested in research studying how social stratification impacts mob mentality? If that kind of subject matter is appealing to you, we have some faculty members you’d probably like to meet.
The Auburn Montgomery Master of Sociology program offers quality instruction and a broader scope of courses than most of the comparable schools in our area. If you like the research side of sociology, AUM is the place for you. Our professors practice research and are accomplished scholars with numerous publications and accolades. That provides our faculty with a solid foundation from which to offer a research-based degree, placing a heavy emphasis on theory, policy and analysis. And if you’re looking for the application/practitioner side of sociology, this program is built for that as well. In other words, we teach it all.
This is a cooperative degree with Auburn University, opening up a whole new world of additional resources and academic activity. An AUM master of sociology is also a very solid base on which to build a Ph.D.
