Departmental Goals and Objectives

The interdisciplinary BA in Sociology/Anthropology (SOA) allows students to cultivate skills and tools from both disciplines, preparing them for a broad range of careers and future studies. Core courses in the SOA major cover both disciplines and students are free to specialize in either anthropology or sociology through electives or through a minor.

The objective of the B.A. degree in Sociology/Anthropology (SOA) is to provide a broad understanding of the nature and diversity of societies and cultures. We emphasize multiculturalism, taking account of the perspectives and experiences of women, racial and ethnic minorities, and people from other cultures.

The SOA Department offers an Honors Track in the major.
