If you want to learn about the human experience, then you’ve come to the right place. The Department of Sociology and Anthropology at MSU Denver examines the social behavior and the biological evolution that make us human.
Sociology is the study of social life, social change and the social causes and consequences of human behavior. Sociologists investigate the structure of groups, organizations and societies and how people interact within these contexts. Since all human behavior is social, the subject matter of sociology ranges from the intimate family to the hostile mob, from organized crime to religious traditions, from the divisions of race, gender and social class to the shared beliefs of a common culture. Because sociology addresses the most challenging issues of our time, it is a rapidly expanding field whose potential is increasingly tapped by those who craft policies and create programs.
A degree in anthropology opens your world to many fascinating areas of exploration. It provides a cultural basis to explore contemporary problems of human diversity, an archaeological foundation to explore the totality of human experience from its beginnings to the present, and biological anthropology to delve into the study of humans as biological organisms. The Bachelor of Arts degree will prepare you to collect and analyze data, material and cultural, to assist you in basic scientific problem-solving. You’ll learn through hands-on work in the field and in the classroom.
If you’re interested in social science, possess analytical and problem-solving skills and like to be challenged, the Department of Sociology and Anthropology will serve you well.
