Weissman School of Arts and Sciences

Courses in the Department of Sociology & Anthropology introduce students to a range of issues and perspectives essential to developing critical analyses of contemporary world events. This includes how individuals, people in families, large and small groups, and entire cultures live, think, and interact. Introductory courses offer a broad overview of the complexity of world cultures and American society. Advanced courses provide an in-depth focus on particular world areas, social institutions, and significant social trends.
