Department of Sociology, Anthropology and Social Work
Our department’s majors explore some of today’s most consequential social issues, examining such topics as the causes of social justice, social inequality, the social factors that influence human behavior, and the diversity of cultural practices.
The Sociology major offers concentrations in Anthropology, Marriage and Family, and pre-Social Work. These options allow students to design their degree to best fit their educational and career goals. Students learn from faculty that specialize in sociology of families, religion, and education, as well as urban sociology, anthropology, archaeology, and social work. Internships, field practicums, archaeological fieldwork, and other experiential learning opportunities prepare students for their future careers by allowing them to take the knowledge and skills they learn in the classroom and apply it to directly to the community.
Our degree plans prepare you for a variety of career paths, including non-profit work, social work, local, state, and federal agencies, museums, the law, and many other areas. University- and department-level scholarships may be available.
