    The Department of Sociology, Criminology and Anthropology offers a variety of programs that link coursework in the social sciences to students' career-related objectives and also prepares students to enter post-graduate programs in a variety of professions such as law, criminal justice, urban planning, public health, social work, and university teaching and research.

    All of the courses offered by the Department are taught by the faculty; there are no teaching assistants. In addition to their commitment to teaching, faculty are actively engaged in research and publication in their areas of specialization. This scholarly activity further enhances students' classroom experience by focusing on cutting-edge contemporary issues.

    Hands-on Learning
    Students are encouraged to engage in undergraduate research in collaboration with or under the supervision of faculty. Students also have the opportunity to present their research at annual meetings of scholarly associations. Some faculty also offer a service learning component to their courses, and some frequently offer travel-study opportunities that allow students to combine academic learning with experiential learning through faculty-led group travel outside the United States.

    Student Organizations
    Membership in the Student Sociology and Anthropology Association allows students to share and discuss their academic experiences and career goals with other students. Members also conduct fundraising socials and participate in community service projects. The Department also inducts students into the local chapter of Alpha Kappa Delta, an international sociology honor society.

    Honors Program
    The Department has developed an honors track to enhance the preparation of academically strong students for professional or graduate school.
