Department of Sociology and Anthropology

Committed to your learning experience!

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.

Class ProjectorFew fields of study have such a broad scope and relevance to contemporary problems and issues. The Bachelor of Arts program at Winthrop stresses social theory and research methods/statistics. It focuses on criminology and deviant behavior, the urban community, racial/ethnic relations, population, and the sociology of aging.

Concentrations in Criminology and Anthropology are offered.

The department's goal is to provide a well-rounded liberal arts program, exposing students to a wide variety of topics and disciplines.
