A holistic approach to the study of human life and its contemporary issues.

Make valuable contributions to people and communities within a highly globalized and interconnected world. As a sociology and anthropology student, you will embark on a fascinating, holistic study of human life – the social, cultural, economic, political and psychological aspects. You will study patterns of everyday life and consider why people behave as they do. As you grow in knowledge, so too will you grow in sensitivity, empathy and concern for ethical issues and the greater good required. 

The ability to think critically and imaginatively, interpret and assess an argument, design and carry out research, and write and speak cogently is increasingly valuable to today’s employers. Develop your interpersonal competence through interactive courses, interdisciplinary study programs, off-campus internships and immersive overseas learning. Learn how to intelligently articulate and support a position, and enhance your comparative gaze in tackling contemporary problems.
