Sociology and Anthropology
Bachelor of Arts (BA)
Middlebury College in Middlebury, VT
Sociologists and anthropologists study the social structures and cultural categories that form the basis for collective life. We examine the order and meaning in human societies as well as the contradictions that produce patterns of conflict and change. Large forces for social reproduction—economic and technological transformations, political upheavals, cultural change, race and gender relations, deviance and social control, communicative practices, social movements, and inequality—are the focus of our department. SOAN students explore these themes in the classroom and through fieldwork and independent research. Sociology and Anthropology are distinct disciplines engaged in a common intellectual purpose: to analyze individual experiences and place them in a social and cultural context. For example, we view matters that are often perceived as personal problems as the consequence of dynamic historical, cultural, social forces. The goal of sociology and anthropology is not merely to acquire knowledge about how society works, but to critically engage with the complexities of social life. Understanding these dynamics is essential for anyone who would like to evaluate the world we live in and to promote social change.

Sociology/Anthropology
Bachelor of Arts (BA)
Green Mountain College in Poultney, VT
By investigating the broadest range of cultures in prehistory, history, and today’s world, sociology and anthropology tell us where we came from and how to craft a more just and sustainable future. From human evolution to today’s class, racial, and gendered inequalities, the fields of sociology and anthropology provide the tools to help us understand how a world of culturally diverse people forges meanings, negotiates identity, and creates and solves conflicts. We draw on biological and cultural perspectives from prehistory, history, and the world around us to understand where we came from; then we engage with the real world to create just and sustainable lives in a world rift with social inequality, confronting environmental challenges, and full of the promise of human potential.

Anthropology & Sociology
Bachelor of Arts (BA)
Johnson State College in Johnson, VT
Detectives. Globetrotters. Time travelers. Anthropologists and sociologists are all of these and more, studying that most fundamental of topics: ourselves. Anthropologists and sociologists explore the world’s diverse cultures and social behaviors — from the beginning of time to 10 minutes ago. They investigate the overlapping social structures of family, economy, politics, education, religion and media that both form and inform our behavior and relationships. Students in this program probe such diverse topics as art, environment, evolution, symbolism, values, healing and religion to understand the range of cultural and biological differences among the world’s peoples. They study how the distribution of power affects issues of social justice and sustainability. Courses such as “Anthropology of Death,” “Gender and Society” and “Religion, Culture & Alternate Realities” provide a global perspective on topics that have shaped civilization. A concentration in Criminal Justice also is available in this major. You'll learn about new cultures and gain new perspectives as you study issues of race, religion, gender and power structure and how they affect us individually and as a society. With integrative study in anthropology and sociology, students investigate and learn to appreciate how diversities and social-structural arrangements among people affect the distribution of power and the ability of people to live meaningful, sustainable lives and co-exist in a fair, socially just world. Anthropology explores the range of cultural and biological differences and similarities among all peoples; topics include evolution, environment, symbolism, values, art, healing, religion and consciousness. Sociology investigates social interaction, the societal forces of inequality and power, and how social structures, economics, politics, education, religion, technology and the media affect the way we behave, interact and view the world.
