Undergraduate Catalog 2021-2022

Sociology and Anthropology

Department of Sociology and Anthropology, Building 4S, Room 223

The Department of Sociology and Anthropology offer a baccalaureate degree and minor in sociology and anthropology and a minor in critical criminology and social justice.  The joint major in Sociology and Anthropology offers several options: most of the 40-44 credit requirement may be met by courses in sociology or in anthropology, according to the student’s primary interest; courses from both disciplines may be mixed equally.  The concentration in critical criminology and social justice offers critical approaches to the study of crime, criminality, policing and incarceration, with attention to social justice issues that arise in these areas of study (concerning, for example, the place of race, gender, class, disability, age, and ethnicity in judicial and carceral systems).  In addition to the concentration, a minor in Critical Criminology and Social Justice is available to students outside the major.
The program prepares students for such areas as teaching sociology or anthropology, social work, urban planning, public health, management, and law. Selected sociology and anthropology courses will also be of particular interest to majors in Biology, Psychology, History, Economics, International Studies, Nursing, and Computer Science.
