People, Culture, and Society
Are you fascinated by human difference in all its biological and historical complication? Anthropology is the study of the human species, its relatives and antecedents, everywhere and throughout time. As a discipline, it includes social sciences, biological sciences, earth sciences, and health sciences.
Does history excite you? The study of history demonstrates that, as individuals and as a community, we cannot hope to comprehend the present and prepare for the future without an understanding of the past. Knowledge of the past provides students with a sense of the people, ideas, forces, and institutions that shaped the condition of our contemporary world.
Students in this major explore how the interactions between individuals, groups, and the larger society shape and are shaped by social institutions such as the criminal justice system, education, government, economic structures, the media, politics, family, and religion. Using sociological theories and social science research methods, sociology students will examine how socioeconomic status, race, ethnicity, age, gender, sexualities, etc. affect behavior, interactions, and experiences in diverse societies.
