Degrees and Certificates

Bachelor of Arts Anthropology

If you're interested in the variety of cultures and languages in the world and the origin, development and behavior of people, consider studying anthropology. An awareness of ourselves and how we function in society can be a very valuable educational asset. Anthropologists and sociologists must be creative and open-minded and possess intellectual curiosity, the ability to think logically, and have good communication skills.

For specific degree requirements, learning outcomes, descriptions, and other information, take a look at the degree's entry in the Purdue Fort Wayne Undergraduate Catalog.

Bachelor of Sociology

The Bachelor of Arts Sociology degree is now also available as an online option in all degree seeking courses required to complete the major. See here for more information.

Courses in sociology provide an understanding of society and of the relationship between the individual and society. Studies in sociology help to prepare you for graduate school and careers in the social services, law, human relations, criminal justice, government, education, and mass media. In order to effectively plan a course of study that will best meet your educational and career objectives, you will be assigned to an adviser as soon as you declare a major in sociology.

Although a minor is not required, study in an outside area is recommended. Anthropology, computer science, economics, history, labor studies, political science, psychology, organizational leadership and supervision, and women's studies support the major well.

Our department has two major goals for its sociology undergraduate degree program: to prepare students for further study at the graduate level and to provide the body of skills that are necessary for students to acquire a job with a bachelor’s degree.
