Saint Louis University

The 21st century belongs to interdisciplinary research and we are poised to benefit from our multidisciplinary
department. In scholarship, teaching, and service we are  thinking and working outside the traditional boxes.
The Department of Sociology and Anthropology offers degree programs in: Anthropology; Sociology;
Forensic Science; and GIS.  These four specialties bring different theory and empirical research techniques
that broaden our curriculum and will allow us to better serve our students.

Innovative Programs and Curricula:

The Department also offers interdisciplinary programs in Geo-spatial analysis and Health and Social Sciences.

The new major in Forensic Science provides students with the opportunity to gain scientific and analytic skills and experience to analyze a wide range of social and physical phenomena.  It is a great complement to any major, or it can be taken as a minor as well.

New concentrations in the Sociology major are now being offered.

The Department is now offering new courses in sociology and anthropology designed to address the changes in Health education and the MCAT exam.

New interdisciplinary Ph.D. program in Public and Social Policy. The program offers track specializations in Urban and Community Development, Health, and Geospatial methodology.
