Department of Sociology and Anthropology
The 21st century belongs to interdisciplinary research and we are poised to benefit from our multidisciplinary department. In scholarship, teaching, and service we are both thinking and working outside the traditional boxes. Adding to our disciplinary diversity we just hired a social demographer and a social geographer. These two members promise to advance our focus on St. Louis as a laboratory of social science research. They bring new theory and empirical research techniques which will broaden our curriculum and will allow us to better serve our students.
STUDENT OF THE MONTH
Brittany Murray is a recent SLU grad from Cincinnati, Ohio. Her major was anthropology with a minor in forensic science.
Hear about Brittany's archaeological field school experience at Cahokia Mounds in Illinois and how she learned how to use mapping software to create 3D images of the burials within Cahokia's Mound 72.
The Department of Sociology and Anthropology offers two degree programs and several certificate options.Anthropology
Anthropology explores humankind across time, examining the similarities and differences of human groups, cultures and societies both locally and worldwide. Students study these patterns through a hands-on approach, whether in the lab or in the field - in the United States or across the world.
Sociology opens students to the scientific study of society and social change through the complexities of human behavior. Students can explore a multitude of topics through sociology, with options to further their education through graduate study of the discipline. Graduate students may strengthen their studies through in-depth study and work with advanced geographic software. A new graduate program offers students the opportunity to advance their education after they graduate by earning a Master's Degree in Public Sociology.
Forensic Science is the application of a broad spectrum of sciences to answer questions of interest to a legal system. Our program provides laboratory based and hands-on education in an application of evidence to legal (criminal) questions.
