A message from the department chair, Dr. Ray Darville

Welcome to the Department of Anthropology, Geography and Sociology. Our multi-disciplinary faculty and staff strive to provide transforming educational experiences for students interested in pursuing careers in our social sciences. Our department priorities are introducing students to the core knowledge of our disciplines, helping students to acquire skills for the 21st century, engaging our students in field-based learning, as well as leading them to explore careers, lifelong learning and civic engagement. We offer majors in geography, sociology with anthropology emphasis, sociology with gerontology emphasis and a major in sustainable community development. Our students graduate with the knowledge and ability to enter a rich variety of careers, but we tailor our curriculum to meet student interests and career goals.
