A degree from the department of Sociology and Anthropology prepares you for a career in a variety of fields. Our successful alumni show that the challenge was well worth it and that hard work and passion pay off. 


The Sociology Ph.D. program prepares students for teaching 
and research positions in the academic environment or professional industry. 

Social Science Café

The Social Science Cafe is a place where people come together, relax with a cup of coffee or a mug of beer, and talk about society. 

Sessions last roughly an hour and usually involve one person giving a brief discussion on a social issue or academic topic, followed by plenty of time for questions and open conversation. 

All events are free and open to the public. Our goals are to promote intellectual curiosity, encourage vigorous discussion of social issues, and build a sense of community among the diverse scholars, students and people of Morgantown, West Virginia.
