Pg. 50 of the 1953 Athens State College Catalog
Athens State University has offered sociology since 1914. Prior to this, it would have fallen under the general term of "Social Studies".
In 1953, Sociology was included in the field of "Man and his Social World" . As time passes and our world changes, Sociology has only become more nuanced and complex.
