Department of Sociology & Anthropology

Sociology and Anthropology courses prepare you to study the world from many different perspectives and generate new ideas about people, culture, and society.


Sociology is the scientific study of social life, the exploration of social change and a lens into the complexity of the causes and consequences of human behavior.
