Ever wondered why the world is like is it is? Anthropology and Sociology offers ways of understanding the complex social dimensions of challenges the world is facing by examining the contexts of human experience and social relationships comparatively across place and time.

The study of Anthropology and Sociology provides valuable skills for living and working in a globalising and inter-connected world by exposing you to different systems of beliefs, values and practices found among the world’s cultures. But it’s not just about other cultures. A major in Anthropology and Sociology helps you understand Australian society and its relationship to the world. At a personal level, it offers a perspective on challenges in your everyday life, and encourages you to question your taken-for-granted beliefs. We teach skills in critical thinking, careful observation and record-keeping, oral, visual and written expression, research skills such as interviewing, listening and critical reflection.
