BA in Anthropology and Sociology
This combined BA degree is designed for those students who are interested in both sociology and anthropology. It focuses on those areas of the two disciplines where there is convergence in theory and methods. Through this major, students are introduced to major substantive areas in both disciplines. The major allows enough choice in electives that students may focus on a broader perspective in social science than is available in either the single sociology major or the single anthropology major.
Students who major in sociology and anthropology are required to take 12 courses within the two departments, totaling 36 credit hours. These courses are as follows: one introductory course viewing humans as part of the natural environment (ANTH 101, 103, 104, 105, or 106); either ANTH 102 or a 100-level sociology class; an anthropology class focusing on an ethnographic area (ANTH 211–223); SOCL 205; both SOCL 206 and SOCL 301; three anthropology electives chosen from offerings at the 200 or 300 level; two sociology electives chosen from offerings at the 200 or 300 level; and SOCL 365. Students interested in pursuing the joint sociology-anthropology major should consult the departmental chair or advisor.
