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.

Bachelor of Arts (BA)
Johnson State College in Johnson, VT

Anthropology
Bachelor of Arts (BA)
Bennington College in Bennington, VT
Anthropology challenges us to ask what it means to be human, and opens us to the diversity and dynamics of humankind. At Bennington, we bring this lens to a range of topics, from economics and politics, to culture and worldviews, to connections in social dynamics. We encourage students to take a critical look at their assumptions about culture, relativism, ethnocentrism, universalism, integration; about capitalism, democracy, globalization, colonialism, and human-environmental interactions. In this sense, anthropology aims to make the strange familiar and the familiar strange. In their coursework, students are introduced to basic anthropological skills and tools, which they are able to practice in research they undertake on campus or during their annual off-campus Field Work Term. Students whose academic plans include anthropology are encouraged to do advanced work in the field. Theses provide students the opportunity to improve their skills in data collection, critical thinking, and communication. Just as interests and academic plans range widely, so do research topics: recent examples include China’s one-child policy to community arts in Philadelphia to spoken language and group identity in a Lebanese village. Bennington alumni have gone on to top graduate programs and pursued professional training and careers in human rights work, public art, public policy, think tanks, education, educational policy, museum studies, law school, journalism, and health care.

Sociology
Bachelor of Arts (BA)
University of Vermont in Burlington, VT
If you are actively concerned about the world you live in and want to do something constructive and useful in it—whether in law, business, education, medicine, urban or rural planning—sociology provides our best means for understanding how the system works. Whether you want to change society radically, modify it, preserve it as it is, or restore it to a bygone era, you must first understand what the structure of system is, how social order is maintained, and how social change can be affected. Sociology can give you some of that knowledge and can further help you acquire the analytic tools to develop it on your own. Sociology majors generally leave with solid research skills, people skills, and presentation skills, which helps prepares them for many fields of work. Some of our students go on to get PhDs in sociology or related fields, many work in human service agencies, or go on to masters in social work programs or law school. Concentrations Social Gerontology Concentration The Department of Sociology offers an optional twelve credit concentration in Social Gerontology for Sociology Majors only, including SOC 020 and SOC 120; either SOC 220 or SOC 222; and at least one course from SOC 154, SOC 254, or SOC 255. Students interested in completing the Social Gerontology concentration are encouraged to consult their faculty advisor early in their program. Crime and Criminal Justice Concentration The Concentration in Crime and Criminal Justice within the Major in Sociology requires that of the courses taken for the major 12 credits/four courses must be chosen from the list below (at least two of which must be at the 100 level or above and at least one of which must be at the 200 level.) Courses that count toward the concentration (and thus also toward the major) may also include a relevant internship (Sociology 285 or 286), a relevant variable content course (e.g., SOC 096 – Urban Inequality and Crime, “The Wire”) a relevant HCOL course (e.g., HCOL 186 – Gender, Race and Crime), or a relevant course from another department. These will be considered for approval on a case-by-case basis. Students who took courses before Spring 2017 that now count toward the concentration before the concentration was approved may have them count. Sociology is similar to other liberal arts degrees, such as philosophy and history, insofar as the skills you acquire are transferrable to many fields. Our students go into a variety of fields because a liberal arts degree equips students to do research, write and read critically and analytically so they can be trained for any kind of work. Many public or nonprofit agencies, governmental bureaus, and community programs hire sociology majors, as do organizations that need people with skills in sociological methodology and social statistics. Often, sociology serves as a pre-professional background.
