Why get a Sociology & Anthropology Minor?

The Department of Sociology and Anthropology offers a major and a minor program of study in sociology and anthropology. Sociology and anthropology are perhaps unique among the social sciences for their holistic perspective that is, for their endeavor to discern broad patterns and interrelationships among all the practices and institutions of society and culture, in all times and places. The program in anthropology and sociology is designed to accommodate students for whom sociology/ anthropology is a major, students who wish to study the field to complement other studies, and students who intend to study sociology and/or anthropology at the graduate level. In the view of the department, sociology and anthropology constitute one integral field; all courses shall be taught with that assumption, and there is no separate sociology or anthropology track within the major. Students wishing to pursue graduate studies in one field or the other may wish to choose their electives with that in mind, in consultation with the members of the department. Career opportunities for majors depend in part on the student’s course work emphasis within the department as well as collateral course work in other disciplines.
