Department of Sociology and Anthropology

The mission of the Department of Sociology and Anthropology is to promote a critically engaged observation and understanding of society and culture. Our students will develop skills to explore societal issues through theoretical, cross-cultural, and methodological approaches. To reach such goals, faculty are committed to learning-centered teaching, meaningful research, social advocacy, and service in and beyond the community.
