The Sociology and Anthropology program of Rochester Institute of Technology focuses on understanding social and cultural complexity and diversity.


The Sociology and Anthropology program of Rochester Institute of Technology examines critical issues such as the economy, politics, gender and sexuality, race and ethnicity, urban living, the family, and health as they are shaped by social forces and cultural values. You’ll gain insight from a wide range of theoretical perspectives and you’ll develop the necessary research skills to further examine topics of critical importance in society. Students in the sociology and anthropology program build a strong foundation to pursue a wide range of career options both in the United States and abroad.

The sociology and anthropology major is dedicated to understanding and appreciating social and cultural complexity and diversity across the globe and through time. Students are exposed to critical perspectives, theories, and research skills that are necessary to engage in complex global and local issues that crosscut the economy, politics, society, gender, ethnicity, and culture. Understanding societies both past and present better prepares us to face the challenges of a rapidly changing world and to assume positions of leadership that promote vision and equity.
