The Sociology and Anthropology Department’s mission is fourfold:

  1. to teach students discipline specific history, knowledge and methods,
  2. to help students develop critical thinking skills in order to produce reflective, logical, independent theses,
  3. to support the liberal arts mission of the college, and
  4. to add to the body of sociological and anthropological knowledge by conducting and disseminating research.

We are committed to excellence in our teaching and research programs. Read more about the Department's mission.
