Anthropology Undergraduate Program
The Department of Sociology and Anthropology offers introductory and advanced courses in sociology and anthropology covering the major subfields of both disciplines. It also offers supervised field work and practicum experiences required for certain curricula in the department. The department teaches students the principles and techniques for understanding human group behavior. Most specifically, the department seeks to educate students to understand communities and organizations and the people who live and work within them; to qualify exceptional students at the undergraduate and graduate level for sociological and anthropological research, teaching, and extension careers; to solve problems in human group relations; to provide majors with academic background and experience useful for many careers in government and industry; and to provide service courses to students in other curricula and in the Division of Continuing Education.
The Department is administered by the Colleges of Humanities and Social Sciences, CHASS, and offers Bachelor of Arts.
