Welcome! Housing two disciplines, the Department of Sociology and Anthropology offers courses and research opportunities that seek to foster self and societal awareness as well as an understanding of what it means to be human. Instruction within the department also provides students with the necessary analytic skills to understand and conduct social research. Central to the department's major programs is training in research methods, statistics, and the use of computer applications in social science.
We offer three bachelor of arts majors: anthropology, sociology and anthropology, and sociology/social psychology. The three programs are parallel in structure and requirements and each consists of 40 credit hours of course work. The sociology and anthropology major is an interdisciplinary program for students desiring a wider familiarity with social science fields, whereas the anthropology and sociology/social psychology majors are for students desiring more traditional, disciplinary programs of study. At the graduate level, we offer an MA in Sociology.
