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.
