Department Chair: Debra Curtis, Ph.D., M.P.H
Sociology and Anthropology are two distinct disciplines that analyze cultures, social institutions, and how individuals behave in groups. The department faculty deploy global, comparative, and multidisciplinary approaches to the study of human social organization and cultural practices. Both disciplines are committed to understanding how people make sense of their lives and how peoples’ lives are shaped by economics, globalization, ethnic, race, and gender relations, religious forces and other social processes.
The department offers a combined major (B.A.) in Sociology and Anthropology (SOAN) in which students take courses from both disciplines in order to construct a robust intellectual platform for employment, civic engagement, and graduate studies.
