Sociology and Anthropology

Dear Visitors,

On behalf of our faculty, staff and students, welcome to the Department of Sociology and Anthropology!

Renowned external sociologists who have evaluated the department have given it high praise for its curriculum, scholarly collaboration with students, and university and community service. Many of our majors and minors are leaders at Stetson who form and lead student organizations and excel in their academic work, culminating in conference presentations and awards. Indeed, one of our recent graduates won a prestigious national award from the American Sociological Association for writing the "Best Student Paper" in a crowded field of undergraduate and graduate student paper submissions. Also, a growing number of our students are getting their opinions published in large-circulation newspapers, like the Daytona Beach News-Journal and the Orlando Sentinel, and are themselves making the news through their activities in and out of the classroom.

Stetson University’s Department of Sociology and Anthropology develops undergraduates as social researchers and informed citizens, both locally and globally. The department emphasizes social inequality, social institutions, and social change to develop a better understanding of social justice.
