Welcome to Sociology & Anthropology

Sociology and Anthropology

The Sociology and Anthropology Department welcomes you. We are committed to excellent teaching and research on social and cultural issues that shape the U.S.-Mexico borderlands and elsewhere, past and present. We are proud of the accomplishments of our students, and we are committed to work to apply social science to the goals of the El Paso-Ciudad Juárez region and its people. On our pages, you will find information about our active, engaging BA degrees and minors in Anthropology and Sociology, and our excellent border, environment and health-oriented MA degree in Sociology. Please look through our website and feel free to contact us.
