The Department of Society, Culture and Languages provides a liberal arts education in sociology that emphasizes culture, globalization, and political life. We investigate human problems involving gender, race, class, and culture, and consider ways to solve them. We encourage experiential learning and offer foreign language classes that synthesize traditional language instruction with cultural exploration.
