Majoring & Minoring
Five core courses ensure that students are exposed to and understand the range of quantitative and qualitative methods used in this branch of social science. The department draws heavily on cross-cultural examples and requires each major to take at least one course of intensive study of another region of the world. Students then elect additional courses, including an independent research project in the senior year. Students with particular interests in either anthropology or sociology may weigh their electives toward their field of choice.
Believing that sociological and anthropological perspectives on the world are a vital part of an education in the liberal arts and sciences, the department opens most courses to students majoring in other areas. Those concentrating in the arts, humanities, or natural sciences find sociology and anthropology an illuminating complement to their major fields of study. The curriculum offers a logical sequence of courses for students who want to go beyond the introductory level in sociology and anthropology.
Course sizes range from seven students (at the upper level) to nearly 40 students (at the introductory level).
Students enrolled in the program may also select an internship placement from a variety of community organizations and social agencies including hospitals, schools, social welfare agencies, counseling centers, and local government. They work 10 to 14 hours a week and participate in a seminar to explore their experiences with a professor and students working in other agencies. This experience allows students to apply their academic studies to the world around them.
