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.
Few 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.
