Department of Sociology and Anthropology

Chair's Message

Please join us in learning about the social world with hands-on experience. Over 120 majors have made the choice. Why? A Fulbright winning scholar can teach you about the African diaspora through archeological fieldwork in slave graveyards. You can actively learn about the justice system by touring local and state court facilities or riding along with the local police. You can engage in service learning projects that combat loneliness among the elderly; organize benefit concerts for Iraqi children impacted by war or help with community building in Nicaragua.

You will be mentored and advised by a faculty that is recognized by the University for its excellence. Whether you are in the criminology concentration, anthropology concentration or you are a traditional sociology major, you will be taught by dedicated faculty members who are committed to your learning experience. Our graduates do not simply memorize facts. They are provided with the appropriate research skills to seek answers to their own questions. Sound exciting? It is.
