Department of Sociology and Anthropology


Sociology and Anthropology are related social science disciplines looking at human social and cultural behavior, and human biological and cultural diversity. The Department has a diverse faculty offering expertise in most of the major specialties in both fields. Students who complete the Sociology and/or Anthropology programs take advantage of opportunities to work one-on-one with faculty in independent studies, to complete internships or to work alongside faculty on research and fieldwork.
