Sociology and anthropology study the many facets of human societies, cultures, and social behavior. Courses in this area will illuminate the attempts of social scientists to provide answers to persistent questions of social life. Students will learn how to better observe and conceptualize their social and cultural world.
The Sociology and Psychology major is recommended for students seeking a career in business organizations, government service, as pre-professional education for later careers in human services and social work, and as preparation for graduate work in sociology, psychology or law. The sociology minor is appropriate for students preparing for secondary teaching, business careers, or government service.
Students are highly recommended to apply for an internship experience to be completed after the first semester of the junior year.
