The department of sociology and anthropology offers minors and majors in both anthropology and sociology and a master's degree in applied anthropology.
Studying anthropology at Missouri State
Anthropologists seek to understand the many varied peoples and cultures of the world — past and present — and how they came to be. The anthropology program at Missouri State offers an undergraduate major and minor for students interested in better understanding our diverse world, and a master’s degree for students who want to develop a career in anthropology.
Learning about public sociology
Missouri State University is one of very few universities in the country to offer an emphasis in public sociology. The core component of the public sociology program is community engagement. Students in our program integrate sociological skills into their course work and research as they collaborate with faculty to provide services for local organizations and to address problems and issues in the community.
