Anthropology/Sociology Intra-Departmental, B.A.


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Majors and Minors

The disciplines of anthropology and sociology were developed in 19th-century Europe and the U.S. as distinct but complementary responses to modernity, with anthropology focused on the peoples “outside” and sociology focused on those “inside” the modern world. Today we recognize that these distinctions were and are cultural constructions that do not apply to our globally interconnected worlds. Moreover, the work that cultural anthropologists and sociologists do consistently overlaps, so that the boundaries between them no longer exist in practice. We invite you to immerse yourself in the study of societies and cultures from the combined perspectives of these disciplines in order to deepen your understanding of the variety of peoples, forms of social power, and complex sociocultural practices that constitute our worlds. Our graduates are employed in fields such as professional anthropology and sociology, urban planning, union organizing, community development, non-profit organizations, health services, education and teaching, the juvenile and criminal justice systems, social work, social research and data analysis, public administration, law, politics, racial and minority relations, business, and local, state and federal government.
