Bunce Hall
Sociology & Anthropology

The Sociology and Anthropology Department provides an exceptional program that prepares students for a variety of careers within a liberal arts framework.

Continuing a historical commitment to student-centered education, the program offers sociological training that encourages intellectual, social, and personal growth. Academic rigor and vigorous personal interaction are combined to generate a vital learning community focusing on the whole student.

Through Sociology's scientific approach and humanistic intent, students gain critical appreciation of the role of logic and scientific method in the acquisition of knowledge as well as a deeper appreciation of the fundamental affairs and concerns of human societies, past and present.

A Sociology education enhances self-awareness and sensitivity to our culturally diverse world while developing students' critical reasoning, problem solving, and communication skills.
