(Bachelor of Arts Degree)
(Concentrations in Archaeology, Criminology, Cultural Anthropology, Gender, or General)
Anthropology and sociology are closely related sciences which seek to understand the human world. With anthropology’s emphasis on relationships between human material and symbolic culture, language, and biology, and sociology’s emphasis on social institutions and social behavior, the disciplines provide a broad, holistic understanding of the nature of human beings, human cultures, and human social organizations in the United States and across the globe.
A major in sociology and anthropology is designed to meet the needs of those who are interested in pursuing domestic - or internationally-focused careers in public and private sectors of social services, business, government, public and global health, criminology, education, museum studies, archaeology, and other careers in problem solving and research in which knowledge of social processes is necessary.
