The School of History and Sociology (HSOC) brings the perspective of the social sciences to bear on critical issues facing the modern world, while providing a source of analysis that emphasizes both change over time and cultural comparisons on an international scale. It offers students ample space in the curriculum to pursue other interests, including study abroad experiences, internships, and undergraduate research.

After I graduated from Georgia Tech I began work at Accenture. Consulting has been an awesome experience and working with diverse clients makes every day interesting. One of the things that has helped my transition from school to working has been my time in the School of History and Sociology. My experience at Georgia Tech laid a strong foundation of skills that have translated to consulting exceptionally well.
