Welcome to Sociology, Anthropology, and Geography!

Sociology, Anthropology and Geography are three exciting disciplines that allow you to critically examine human societies from the past to the present.  Our faculty members’ have a variety of research and teaching interests, and we believe that you will find something of interest to study.

In the Sociology and Anthropology concentrations, you will have the opportunity to apply what you have learned in the classroom to the "real-world" by completing an internship in the community. In addition, our majors regularly work with faculty on research projects, which can result in faculty-student publications and/or presentations at national and regional academic conferences. 

Please explore our website to learn more about our Department and the opportunities we offer our students. If you are thinking about applying to UTC and are interested in our program, I would be happy to meet with you, and if you are interested, I can arrange for you to sit in on one of our classes, and meet with some of our faculty.

If you have any questions, please contact me, and I look forward to hearing from you.
