Welcome! You have, by design or accident, happened on the Web Site for the Department of Sociology, Anthropology, and Gerontology - three departments in one so to speak. As chair of this very active department, I feel very lucky to have a faculty second to none in its willingness to help the student wend their way through an important four-year segment of their lives.
As a department, we are dedicated to teaching and counseling our students as we do scholarship and research. Students entering this brace of disciplines will have ample opportunity to get hands-on or, in the case of archaeology; hands-dirty experience. We pride ourselves on both the breadth of our our student-involved activities and on the personal attention we give to each of our majors.
The sub-fields in which students may become actively involved include, under Sociology, social research, gerontology, social deviance and, under Anthropology, historic and prehistoric archaeology, forensic anthropology, and cultural studies.
Don't hesitate to call. I look forward to hearing from you.
Dr. Qi Jiang
Associate Professor and Chair
