Sociology and Anthropology
Although sociology and anthropology arose from two traditions, they are engaged in a common endeavor. Both fields ask students to explore similarities and contrasts in human social behavior, and students in this joint department learn how to examine other cultures and societies while they gain qualitative and quantitative tools for similar analysis outside the classroom.
Work in the department centers on the comparative analysis of human societies, and we emphasize study of both modern and pre-modern societies, including issues of contemporary social policy.
