About SSWA

Students and faculty in the Department of Sociology, Social Work, and Anthropology study people, social institutions, and the patterns of human behavior. Sociologists investigate how social systems work. Social workers seek to improve human lives. And anthropologists research the human experience. We provide students with strong liberal arts programming, sound training in the theories and methodologies of social sciences, and teach the skills essential to practicing in their field.
Our programs provide extensive opportunities for students to engage in hands-on learning and research that advances scientific theory and knowledge relevant to the solution of contemporary social issues. The department offers undergraduate and graduate degrees in Sociology, Social Work, and Anthropology and a doctorate degree in sociology.
