Sociology and Anthropology
The department seeks better intercultural understanding, better ways of understanding how the different parts of a society affect each other, how society and environment interact, and how coexisting nations all mutually influence each other. Students are encouraged to develop an in-depth understanding of a culture other than their own, through course work, independent study and research, and off-campus study. Students have access to the SPSS statistical package for social scientific research, as well as survey design and GIS software. The Carleton library subscribes to the Human Relations Area Files, which offer electronic data on hundreds of cultures.
