Sociology is the study of people interacting with others individually, in groups, and in social systems. Anthropology is the holistic study of the human experience over time and across cultures. An understanding of people, culture, and society will prepare the graduate for useful employment in many occupations and professions, as well as further study at the graduate level. Students can earn a major or minor in anthropology and in sociology. For other students, courses in sociology and anthropology offer excellent electives in any degree program. In addition to specific department requirements listed below, students must complete requirements for the general education core and requirements specific to the College of Arts and Sciences degrees of B.A. or B.S. Note: Students who major or minor in anthropology and sociology cannot apply credit from one field to the other. All cross-listed sociology and anthropology courses (identified as “SOAA”) can be counted toward either field, but cannot be counted toward both.
Graduate Study–The Department of Sociology and Anthropology offers graduate programs leading to a master of arts degree. Further information on graduate programs is contained in the Graduate Catalog.
