- Anthropology (Minor)
The Anthropology/Sociology Major prepares students for the social and professional demands of living in an increasingly multicultural world. Our students examine what it means to be human, how we evolved physically and developed culturally over time, how society and culture influence behavior and how culture provides a lens through which people understand and interpret their world. While we in anthropology and sociology teach about particular cultures and societies, this is accomplished by examining patterns of behavior using a comparative method. Learning is based on empirical investigation which emphasizes observation skills, participation, and critical analysis to create knowledge necessary for understanding these differing behaviors and world- views. A primary focus of the major is its ability to help students develop a set of practical skills and conceptual tools necessary for continuing to learn about other cultures, sub-cultures, and societies after they leave college.
