The Department of Sociology, Anthropology and Criminal Justice offers an undergraduate major in Sociology-Anthropology (called SOAN), with a choice of three different concentrations for study: Sociology, Anthropology, or Criminal Justice, as well as minors in Anthropology and Sociology. At the time they declare the major, each student selects and specifies a concentration of study. All students in the major are exposed to social science methods and perspectives needed to understand culture and society. Each concentration consists of a specialize curriculum, within which students learn valuable content knowledge and also develop important problem solving, critical thinking, interpretive, and analytical skills.
Currently the department consists of about 45 full and adjunct faculty with approximately 800 majors distributed across our three concentrations.
