Sociology / Anthropology

Interdisciplinary Program

In everyday life, people concern themselves with various features of the world which they describe as social. Our interest in the social dimension of life is reflected in the many university disciplines dealing with some aspect of it. Sociology and Anthropology differ from other forms of inquiry in the extent to which study focuses on social phenomena and rests on the common general assumptions of the two disciplines that social life is most significantly structured by social forces. The program is designed to develop an awareness of social and cultural processes and forms, emphasizing what it means to think sociologically and anthropologically. As in all areas of serious study, the two disciplines involve a number of different approaches, and the program is designed to provide students with a good grasp of these various perspectives. Most courses offered also integrate material from Sociology and Anthropology.
