The Department of Sociology & Anthropology offers a rigorous interdisciplinary sociology-anthropology curriculum with breadth across the sociology-anthropology core and depth in each major. The Department of Sociology & Anthropology at Linfield offers majors in both disciplines, yet combines several core courses so that students gain a broader perspective and understanding of human behavior.
GUIDELINES FOR FIRST-YEAR STUDENTS:
MAJOR/MINOR SPECIFIC ADVISING INFORMATION:
A semester abroad is required for anthropology majors; a semester abroad or a January Term travel course is strongly recommended for sociology majors.
Many courses in the Sociology-Anthropology curriculum meet the IS, US, or GP requirements in the Linfield Curriculum. Courses carrying other LC designations include:
|NW:||ANTH 105, ANTH 290 (105 and 290 are cross-listed with BIOL)|
|UQ:||SOAN 210, SOAN 221, SOAN 240|
|CS:||SOAN 251, ANTH 255, ANTH 355|
|EL:||SOAN 040, SOAN 439, SOAN 487|
The MWI requirement is met by successful completion of a 400-level seminar (404, 454, 456, 460, or 465).
The Department of Sociology and Anthropology has three designations: SOCL, ANTH, and SOAN. SOAN courses receive credit for either major (sociology or anthropology), while the first two designations are major-specific. Students are encouraged to take any 100-level and 200-level courses in their first two years. Introductory courses (100-level) are primarily for first and second-year students interested in exploring anthropology or sociology as a major. The 200-level courses have no pre-requisites and are available to all students, major or non-major. Students are urged to take 200-level courses to explore their personal interests, or according to how those classes may relate to their own future major.
