Learning outcomes

The Sociology/Anthropology major at Oakland University prepares students for careers where knowledge of human relationships and/or research skills are desirable, and for graduate work in sociology and related social service fields. Anthropology is the study of humankind in all its aspects, through archaeological, biological, cultural, and linguistic research, and fosters the use of this knowledge in addressing human problems. The major prepares students for graduate work in anthropology and/or archaeology and for careers that utilize anthropological knowledge and training. In anthropology students are required to study research techniques and acquire skills in theoretical analysis. The major program is designed to allow flexibility for students to pursue their own intellectual interests.
