Department of Sociology, Anthropology, and Social Work


Cultural Anthropology explores different cultures in all of their manifestations - from how people make a living to what people live for.  This course examines the diversity of people around the world, and how different aspects of culture (such as economics, politics, family structures, and religion) influence one another, and explore the possibilities and challenges of our increasingly globalized world.  This course will  help you recognize your own cultural biases and questioning the assumptions, beliefs, concepts, and ideas you may have previously taken for granted. There is also an online version of the course available.  ANTH 210 is an Honors course, and only available in fall semesters.

Certificate in Global Health, Medicine, and Society

Are you fascinated with interdisciplinary perspectives on medicine, health, and healing across culture, time, and place? Are you interested in understanding the various social forces that affect human health and diseases, and our responses to them? Are you interested in medical anthropology, the medical humanities, and/or medical ethics?

This new certificate offers students the opportunity to study health and medicine in the era of globalization from a social scientific and humanistic perspective. The interdisciplinary Global Health, Medicine, and Society certificate invites students to think broadly about the health cultures, philosophies, and practices around the world (including in the United States, of course)!
