Undergraduate Students

Want to explore the societies from the past to the present? Do you have a passion to study crime and it's impact on communities? At West Virginia University, we'll teach you about that and more through the lens of social class, poverty, race and ethnicity, gender and criminal justice.

A degree in sociology and anthropology prepares you for a career in the public or private sector. What’s more, your courses help you to better understand human behavior and how to improve quality of life. Our graduates pursue careers in law, health, business and engineering. The skills and knowledge you can build with a degree in sociology, anthropology or criminology will be in high demand.
