Anthropology & Sociology
The Department of Anthropology, Sociology, and Reconciliation Studies thoroughly integrates the methods and theories of anthropology and sociology in the study of social and cultural life. This approach prepares students to live and serve in our complex multicultural world of rapid urbanization, diverse religious voices, political conflict, and a widening gap between the haves and have-nots. Students are encouraged to use the tools of the social sciences to meet these challenges in the light of an informed Christian faith.
