Anthropology and Sociology

The Department of Anthropology and Sociology provides students with knowledge and skills for a successful and satisfying postgraduate life. Anthropology is both a lens and a mirror. As a lens, it brings the behaviors, beliefs, and experiences of other societies into sharper focus, empowering students to better understand and assess the world's cultural diversity. As a mirror, it enables one to critically reflect upon our own society and the ways in which it has shaped us. Sociology complicates what we often take for granted, and it helps us make sense of how it got to be that way. The “sociological imagination” situates our everyday realities in a context defined by history, geography, culture, and structural arrangements of power. With it, we can interrogate the world and our lived experiences systematically and communicate more effectively about them. Sociology, at its best, allows us to envision, create, and transform our world toward liberation for all.

Donations to the Department of Anthropology and Sociology funds will be used to help students achieve academic excellence, such as providing students with small grants to cover some expenses they might have when completing projects and research or attending conferences to present their work.
