What will I learn?

The department offers courses and programs designed to teach students to analyze and understand basic socio-cultural processes, statuses, and roles; to this end, we conduct a yearly assessment to determine how well we have achieved these objectives. The department also prepares students for careers and graduate study in sociology, anthropology, health services administration, public administration, and social work; contributes to the liberal arts training and knowledge of all undergraduates; and provides intellectual skills for students considering careers in these professions and in business.
