What is sociology and cultural anthropology?

The Sociology and Cultural Anthropology Program provides students with unique opportunities to study contemporary American society and a wide range of cultures in the classroom, in surrounding communities, and in cooperation with campus study abroad programs around the world. The program demonstrates a strong focus on student-centered research.

Why study it at Saint Martin's?

Whether conducting archival research, taking fieldtrips to museums or local research sites, learning how to interview subjects of research, use participant observational techniques, or study the classics of global ethnography, our students receive well-rounded anthropological training that prepares them for a broad range of jobs or future graduate work.

Political science students will undertake rigorous course work as they seek to understand the significance of class, race, gender, property relations and other identities in shaping political structures and political behavior. The department will strive to promote social justice and to encourage students to be active, thoughtful members of their community.
