Mansfield University... Developing Tomorrow's Leaders Sociology & Anthropology - What Can I Study?

What Can I Study?

Sociology & Anthropology - Students who graduate with a B.A. in sociology/anthropology and enter the job market directly will find themselves competing with other liberal arts students, but with an advantage--knowledge of key social factors and a firm grasp on research design and methods. This advantage of the B.A. program provides breadth and the potential for adaptability.


Anthropology - The Anthropology minor provides training for the student interested in working with people from backgrounds and cultures different than his or her own. Courses are designed to expose the student to the variations and similarities of human behavior cross-culturally. 

Sociology - The Sociology minor provides training for the student interested in better understanding human social behavior. The minor offers an understanding of group or other collective factors that influence human behavior.
