Troy offers many unique degree programs, including a B.S. in deaf interpreting, as well as lots of different minor options in everything from leadership students to military science. All students, regardless of major, must complete the General Studies Program by their junior year—this program includes classes in various areas such as English, biology, and history. Also, all first-year students participate in the Common Reading Initiative the summer before coming to campus—everyone reads a common book and then participates in book discussions that help everyone further understand the book.
And if you ever need extra assistance, Troy offers several seminars and on-campus resources to help its students academically. Eldridge Hall offers tutoring in math and science-related subjects, and there is also a writing center there to assist students with papers and English assignments. There are also seminars and workshops offered that focus on study habits and choosing the right classes.
