The Open House will be held Friday, October 23rd, from Noon until 4:00pm. The department will have special displays, faculty available to chat with, and free snacks and beverages available. All sociology and anthropology alumni and current majors are encouraged to attend.
We are a diverse and open-minded department with dedicated faculty who are young, but experienced, and very energetic. We are committed to one-on-one interaction with students and mentoring them toward graduate school and/or careers. We offer “active” learning opportunities for students with real-life application in numerous exciting courses of anthropological and sociological studies revolving around culture, society, and people. We have a rigorous curriculum that is designed to prepare our students to successfully participate in a 21st century world. We are excited about the new forensic concentration in Anthropology, and the opportunities it will provide students. It is the first Bachelor of Science in Anthropology with a forensic concentartion in the State of Kansas. It was developed as part of the relationship with the new KBI Forensic Lab and internships will be available with the KBI. Our students also have opportunities for community-service experiences. We invite you to take some time learning about who we are and what our department can offer you!
“My time at Washburn was amazing. A huge part of my college experience was being involved with the Sociology/Anthropology department. As an anthropology major, sociology minor, and student worker in the office, the SO/AN department became a second home during my years at WU. I look back on those years fondly, and am filled with gratitude for my professors and mentors who shaped me into who I am today." ~Beth Nech, Anthropology major and Sociology minor, Graduated May 2013More About Beth
