Department of Sociology & Anthropology
The Department of Sociology and Anthropology offers its curriculum to undergraduate students to pursue the systematic study of society. Anthropology offers a cross-cultural perspective and those courses can be used as social and behavioral science electives.
At the junior/senior level students may be eligible to enroll in independent study courses:
- Individual Readings in Sociology (This provides a one-on-one mentoring course for upper level students with specific research interests beyond those offered in regular course work)
- the Internship Program (Students go into the field to work in a variety of social service agencies which enables them to link theoretical knowledge they learned in previous courses with real life experiences. Students who have taken advantage of the internship program have found that it facilitated their placement in employment after graduation as well as preparing many of them more thoroughly for acceptance into the Master's of Social Work Program also offered here at Indiana University Northwest.)
