Our Mission

Consistent with the mission of the University and the College of Arts and Sciences, the Department of Sociology and Anthropology offers students the opportunity to deepen and broaden their knowledge of humankind and themselves. We provide a broad understanding of cultural, social, and physical diversity in the world - past, present, and future. Students enrolled in sociology and anthropology classes will learn to critically examine social life, its organization, and its meaning. Through engaged pedagogy, we contribute to the intellectual development of our students who acquire the skills needed to examine cultures and societies through empirical, analytical, comparative, and historical methods. We believe that a firm grounding in sociological and anthropological knowledge will enrich the lives of our students and prepare them to be active citizens of their local communities and our global society.
