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 concentration 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!
"I recommend this program to anyone with a desire to learn. The program not only teaches you the fundamentals but also provides the foundation that is needed to be successful. Without this program and the guidance I received, I would not be where I am today." ~ Chris Munz-Pritchard, BA Sociology, May 2007, and BA Anthropology, December 2007More About Chris
