Overview/Welcome

Welcome to the Department of Sociology and Anthropology at Rutgers University in Newark.  We are a friendly department, where big school scholarship combines with small school personal attention and care.  The department is particularly proud of our students and how their diverse backgrounds, histories, and life experiences enrich our classrooms, our work, and each other. 

If you are a student interested in majoring or minoring in sociology or anthropology, a prospective student in our graduate program in Peace and Conflict Studies, or if you'd like to learn about our courses or what we do, feel free to contact the department or any of the faculty.
