Our quest is to understand why humans behave as they do and the real world is our laboratory. By examining human activity in all of its diverse and complex forms, the work of sociologists and anthropologists forms the basis for confronting many of our world’s most challenging issues. 

By majoring in one of these disciplines you will join graduates who have gone on to careers in non-profit organizations, medicine, public policy, counseling, communications, urban planning, historical preservation, environmental justice, teaching, journalism, international development and more.

Sincerely,
Dr. Beth A. Eck
Chair, Department of Sociology and Anthropology
