Department of History, Sociology & Anthropology


The Department of History, Sociology and Anthropology is an intriguing blend of the old and the new. Our faculty help equip students with analytical and communication skills which enable them to investigate past and present human cultures and societies. Students learn skills that allow them to communicate their findings logically, scientifically, and effectively. The History, Sociology and Anthropology Department houses the Gender and Women Studies, Shakespeare Studies, and Sustainability Studies Minors; it also sponsors Black History Month, Native American Week and Earth Day, all of which help students become responsible citizens of the world.

"Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it." George Santayana, 1952
