Anthropology and Sociology at EOU
The Anthropology/Sociology Department offers students an interdisciplinary program of study leading to a degree with three different emphases or concentrations: Anthropology, Sociology, or Sociology / Social Welfare. Our graduates have found success in a wide variety of professional venues, and we also prepare students who wish to pursue graduate study, research and teaching, or simply enhance their understanding of humans and the societies, cultures and environments in which they live. We’re firmly committed to enhancing the learning and reasoning abilities of students and helping them to view and examine ancient and contemporary societies through the cultural and social prisms that define and shape our disciplines.

All of our History courses are taught by faculty who are subject matter experts and active scholars in their respective fields. We balance teaching and research to give students access to the latest ideas in the field of history while continuing to emphasize passionate and quality teaching in a small classroom setting. Many of our students go on to graduate school, law school, or become teachers at the elementary or secondary level. This is because the history major emphasizes the continuity of culture by providing a historical background for the study of other disciplines and the tools necessary for responsible citizenship.

The program prepares you for a variety of rewarding careers–and career changes–that require a multidisciplinary set of skills. Examples include teaching, banking and finance, journalism, resource management, social services, criminal justice, and other public service. The program will also provide excellent preparation for graduate study in law, economics, political science, and philosophy.
