Mission of the Department

The Department of Sociology/Anthropology aims to help students apply the methods of science to explain human behavior in all social and cultural settings. In addition to a major in sociology, the Department offers minors/tracks in anthropology, and criminal justice. Efforts are made to help students understand and deal with contemporary social issues such as sex, power, money, violence, drugs, love, and social oppression in the forms of sexism, racism, and ageism. The Department helps students to develop skills for careers as well as for graduate and professional study.

The Department provides a number of interesting elective courses for students of all majors, including those pursuing careers in business administration, communication studies, computer science, engineering, mental health, social work, teaching, counseling, corrections, health services, gerontology, law, industrial relations, personnel management, public administration, religion, journalism, politics, and the foreign service. An attractive feature of the Department is that students have an opportunity to undertake independent study, internships, and field work, and to work closely with professors on ongoing research projects.
