Welcome to the Sociology, Anthropology & Social Work Department!

Our department offers undergraduate majors in three separate areas of study, hosts one certificate program and offers both a Master's and Ph.D. degree program in Sociology.

Sociology is the systematic study of social relationships at levels ranging from individual interaction to global political and economic relations.


Anthropology examines the cultural, historical, physical, and linguistic behavior of people from all parts of the globe both in the past and present.

Social Work:

Social workers help people in a number of ways including: dealing with their relationships with others; solving their personal, family, and community problems; and growing by learning to cope with or shape the social and environmental forces affecting their daily lives.

Nonviolence Studies Certificate:

Nonviolence Studies examines nonviolence as a holistic, systemic model and method for problem solving in human relationships -- locally and globally; historically and within our daily lives.
