What We Study

Sociologists and anthropologists study human social interaction and cultural practices. We identify patterns of everyday life and consider, broadly, why people behave as they do. Sociology and anthropology are distinct from other social sciences in their holistic approach to the study of human life—encompassing social, cultural, economic, political, and psychological aspects.
