Overview

Sociology and Anthropology study human social behavior, culture, and the nature of society. Their subject matter ranges from the intimate family to mob behavior; from crime to religion; from the divisions based on race, sex and social class to the shared beliefs and actions of an entire society; from the rituals of hunting and gathering peoples, to tailgating at sporting events.

Few fields of study have such a broad scope and relevance to problems and issues of society today. The Bachelor of Arts program at Winthrop focuses on undergraduate study in criminology and deviant behavior, the urban community and population, and the sociology of aging. The department’s goal is to provide a wellrounded liberal arts program, while exposing students to a wide variety of knowledge and expertise within the field of sociology.
