Western Carolina University's Department of Anthropology and Sociology introduces you to entire new worlds, diverse means of researching and understanding humankind, and unlimited career possibilities.
Anthropology and sociology graduates are prepared for a wide variety of careers. Our students work in death investigation, criminal justice, education, human resources, international relations, museum studies, public archaeology, public policy, social services, and communication, among many other fields.
Thanks to smaller class sizes, hands-on learning, and the chance to participate in faculty research, you’ll receive lots of “face time” with your professors, quality educators who are well-known in their disciplines.
The University's Department of Anthropology and Sociology offers either a B.A. or a B.S. degree in both Anthropology and Sociology; a B.S. in Forensic Anthropology; and a Minor and Graduate Programs in Cherokee Studies. There are also options for a Minor in Anthropology or Forensic Anthropology.
WCU's Anthropology and Sociology Dept now has an annual newsletter!
