Anthropology and sociology are rapidly expanding fields that provide a unique lens with which to understand the world. Combining an understanding of cultural development (anthropology) with social factors, forces, and issues (sociology) results in a broad education that propels students toward actions that promote global responsibility, foster healing, restore human dignity, and appreciate human diversity— and you can be a part of this in the Anthropology & Sociology major.
This combined Anthropology and Sociology degree is excellent preparation for future graduate work. You could use this program to become a researcher, an applied anthropologist or sociologist, or a professor. Additionally, the liberal arts curriculum in this program also opens doors to careers in business, law, medicine, social services, archaeology, community development, human rights advocacy, missions, etc.
