Students may elect to do a combined degree program in Anthropology-Sociology.
The Departments of Anthropology and Sociology strongly encourage prospective joint majors to identify related interests within each department’s offerings that can be used in developing a coherent series of classes. Elective coursework in each department can then be used in developing complementary perspectives. Examples include gender, media/cultural representation, and race/ethnicity.
