Our Mission

The anthropology and sociology program disposes students to understand and take responsibility for the social - the world structured by institutions, made meaningful through culture and lived in our actions. Through courses open to all as well as those with major and minor specialization, the program carries out the university's mission of helping students to become life-long learners who seek understanding as a valuable end in its own right. The program implements the university mission of opening access to the world, its accumulated knowledge and ways of knowing. The program practices the university mission by helping students to apply the skills of reflective judgment and the conceptual tools of the program to responsibility to our larger community.
