We are a unique department in that we offer two distinct degrees—anthropology and sociology. Anthropology is broadly defined as the study of humanity, while sociology focuses on studying society and the groups within it. Whichever degree you pick, you can be assured that you’ll receive a degree rooted firmly in the liberal arts tradition.

*Students in this program have the option of earning a dual degree with a B.S.Ed. in secondary education.
