Sociology and Anthropology
Students in the Sociology and Anthropology Department will learn about social problems, group dynamics, cultural diversity and the forces associated with social change in a global community. Students also will gain an understanding of cultural processes that shape individual and group behavior, and will acquire skills in conducting and evaluating social research.
If you would like to work with faculty on researching deviant behavior, conducting archaeological analysis of historical artifacts or studying how gender, race, ethnicity, and social class affect relationships, this is the program for you. We emphasize providing students with the experiences and skills necessary to apply knowledge in real-world contexts.
Students in our program develop marketable skills in research and in applying an understanding of how social systems operate. These skills are relevant to careers in criminal justice, health care, public administration, education, law, business and many more fields of interest. Our undergraduate program also prepares students for advanced study in graduate school.
