Overview

Sociology is the scientific study of human relationships. Sociologists seek to understand the ways that often unseen social forces shape our lives. Anthropology is the holistic study of human biology and culture across time and place. Anthropologists typically work within one of four sub-disciplines: archaeology, biological anthropology, linguistic anthropology, and socio-cultural anthropology.

These disciplines are particularly useful to graduates entering the 21st century labor force. Our rapidly changing and increasingly diverse world offers both opportunities and monumental challenges. Sociology and Anthropology give you the analytical skills to understand such challenges and the tools to improve our societies at all levels – from the neighborhood to the world community.

Through the study of Sociology and Anthropology, students gain access to concrete skills relevant to a broad range of careers, such as family and social services, law, business management and leadership, health and medicine, marketing and survey research, and nonprofit organizational administration. Graduates of our department receive the quality education necessary to pursue graduate work in a variety of fields.
