关于 the 社会学 & 人类学 Department

Students in the 社会学 and 人类学 Department are curious about human behavior, particularly in the context of present and past societies. They want to better understand how people and groups interact, how institutions function, how communities form and operate. This curiosity— along with the 知识 and skills the study of sociology and anthropology provide—helps our majors succeed in the workplace or graduate study.

The study of sociology and anthropology shapes students into articulate communicators, critical thinkers and vanguards for social justice. NJCU’s urban setting is the ideal place to study the diversity of cultures and their commonalities. Our coursework covers socially relevant topics that spark lively discussions and deep reflection: juvenile delinquency, death and dying, 健康, 社会变革, 政治, racial identity, 和更多的.

社会学 and anthropology students have a breadth of careers open to them, but many work in education, 公共服务, criminal justice, law and the nonprofit sector.  They also work in family service agencies, children and youth service agencies, homeless shelters, child and adult day care centers, community-based organizations, or domestic violence programs.

We also offer a Certificate in Drug and Alcohol Counseling that prepares students for licensure in the State of New Jersey.

Our faculty members are a diverse group with a range of interests and specialties. They create an inclusive, welcoming learning environment for both traditional and non-traditional students and they are happy to talk to you about how a Bachelor of 艺术s in 社会学 and 人类学 can help you reach your career goals.

A sociology or anthropology minor is an excellent supplement to any degree program. The department also offers interdisciplinary majors in Ethnic and Immigration Studies and Urban Studies. All these minors are particularly relevant for students interested in people-focused careers. Majors in psychology, 业务, 健康 sciences, 护理, professional security or education may find a deeper understanding of human social lives beneficial to their educational pursuits and careers.

The Department also offers a Bachelor of 社会工作 (BSW) degree. Students interested in social work find themselves with the same curiosities as sociology and anthropology students but have a strong desire to learn skills to apply in practice settings. Students will learn how to engage with individuals, groups, families, organizations, and communities. The signature pedagogy of social work is the field practicum. Students will complete a 450-hour in social service-related setting. Students will participate in several courses related to developing their social work skills, 知识, and values in preparation for social work practice.
