Celebrate societies and cultures around the world.
Sociology is the study of human society - the economic, political,
cultural, and environmental forces which shape our lives and our world.
Cultural anthropology is the comparative study of diverse cultural
perspectives, those unique and ever-changing worldviews that shape human
experience and perception.
We are committed to offering a curriculum that provides opportunities to
comprehensively understand both disciplines, meaningfully educate you
about the world, promote critical understanding of global challenges
facing the world, and inspire engaged global citizenship.
commitment to scholarship and research on local, national and global
issues helps to ensure that students receive quality education and
exciting opportunities. Departmental faculty members work with you to
create significant learning opportunities in the classroom and
community, foster discovery of passion and avocation in the social
world, develop the skills necessary for future graduate study and
meaningful careers in a wide variety of fields, and promote greater
understanding and appreciation of human diversity.
