Anthropology and Sociology at Albion
Anthropology and sociology are distinct fields united by a common interest in
understanding human beings and their communities. In this department we explore how
racial, gender, and class differences affect people's experiences and life chances. We
investigate whether personal troubles such as poverty, harassment, or family dysfunction
are really public or social problems. Our courses examine global processes of change,
human evolution, family and kinship, education, religion, media, art, disability, and
healing. The Department of Anthropology and Sociology offers majors and minors in both
anthropology and sociology, with opportunities for students to take courses and work with
faculty in both fields.
Both anthropology and sociology at Albion emphasize hands-on research and help to prepare
students for a wide variety of careers in government and the private sector. Recent
graduates of the department have gone on to work in fields as diverse as public policy,
law, urban planning, social work, business administration, veterinary medicine, historic
preservation, government, and journalism. Our alumni have pursued advanced degrees in
sociology, cultural anthropology, archaeology, biological anthropology, and American
studies at many different universities, including Harvard University, the University of
Michigan, Indiana University, the University of Wisconsin, UCLA, and the University of
