Welcome to the NC State Sociology and Anthropology Website
Greetings from the Department of Sociology and Anthropology at North Carolina State University! We are a progressive department, dedicated to excellence in teaching, research, extension and outreach. Use the links on the left side of this page to find information about our programs.
Notes on "Navigating our Departmental Website" are at the bottom of this webpage.
Undergraduate and graduate degrees are offered that lead to challenging and rewarding careers in both the public and private sectors. With around 30 full-time faculty as well as lecturers and instructors who teach a total of over 9,000 students each academic year, the Department is one of the largest of its kind in the United States and one of the largest on the campus as well. The Department also serves the citizens of the state, including business, industry, government through its research, extension and outreach activities. These activities are as diverse as studies of poverty and inequality, archaeometry, cardiovascular mortality, child abuse, family issues, biotechnology and food safety to programs involving leadership development, industry needs assessment, conflict management and dispute resolution, and recycling and waste management, to name a few. The Department has a long history on the NCSU campus, tracing its roots back to 1920. The Department has programs of study, research, extension and outreach in the College of Humanities and Social Sciences, CHASS.
The NCSU Department of Sociology and Anthropology is building a community that is inclusive and welcoming to all people, including those with disabilities. A student desiring reasonable accommodations for his/her documented disability should visit http://www.ncsu.edu/equal_op/dss for more information.
The Department has been located in the 1911 Building since 1943 except for the one-year period 2007-2008 for renovations. Why is it called the 1911 Building?
