Sociology & Anthropology

Department Mission

In the pursuit of knowledge, sociology and anthropology each have their place. Though distinct in terms of theoretical lineages and perspectives – one primarily social structural (sociology) and the other primarily cultural and physical (anthropology), they share a systematic and careful effort to understand the richness and complexity of human societies and cultures.
