General Description / Special Programs
Sociology/Anthropology at Lycoming College orients students within the shared history and theory of these two disciplines by providing a solid educational foundation in both Sociology and Anthropology. In addition to completing core courses in both disciplines, students also have the flexibility within their course of study to focus more specifically on coursework pertaining to either sociology or anthropology, as students select one of these disciplines as their concentration. We offer minors in Anthropology, Sociology, and Human Services. Lycoming College has a strong interdisciplinary Archaeology Program in addition to the programs available in the Sociology/Anthropology Department, with a considerable number of double-majors in Archaeology and Anthropology. We offer three cultural area concentrations for our Archaeology majors: Ancient Near East, Classical Mediterranean, and Latin America, along with a minor in Archaeology.
