Department of Sociology and Anthropology
Uncertainty about the economy, health care, and the labor market. Ethnic conflicts in an era of rapid globalization. Concern for the environment. Shifting gender arrangements, as work and family come into conflict. Violence in schools, and even houses of worship.
Never has there been a greater need for sociological research focused on the problems and issues of our time. Study sociology and anthropology at Northeastern University, and equip yourself with the practical and theoretical tools needed to address the complex social and cultural issues the U.S. confronts in a period of far-reaching social change.
Northeastern’s Sociology and Anthropology Department provides students with the research skills and critical perspectives needed to understand the complex causes of the most pressing challenges of our time and develop appropriate solutions to address them. Some of these challenges include climate change, health disparities, racism and racial injustice, and income inequality and precarity.
