Sociology and Anthropology

College of Behavioral and Social Sciences


The Department of Sociology and Anthropology is a vibrant community of engaged students, award winning teachers, and renowned scholars. An education grounded in sociology or anthropology will empower you to explore the world; giving you the vision to know the questions to ask, the research tools to find their answers, and the skills to turn your findings into social solutions. We pair a first class education and scholarship with a departmental culture of inclusion, involvement, interaction, and individual attention. If you’re interested in sociology, social services, cultural anthropology, or archeology, then you’ve found your home at Georgia Southern.

Summer/Fall Registration Information

Registration for the 2019 Summer and Fall terms begins April 9th. Check Wings or the following website for the exact day and time your window opens:

Students must meet with their advisor and receive their RAN number in order to register. Make sure you have met with either Mr. Miguel Alvarado (Statesboro) or Ms. Ashlie Tyson (Armstrong). Registration is completed online. Any special requests must come through your advisor.

We are offering our popular Camp Lawton Civil War Prison Site Field school again during Term A. Students interested in our Archaeology Field School (ARCH 4732) must complete an application and submit it to Dr. Ryan McNutt or to the dept office.

Anthropology or Sociology majors interested in completing an internship for credit during the Summer or Fall terms should contact the appropriate Internship advisor to discuss options asap. Sociology internships are overseen by Dr. April Schueths and Anthropology internships are overseen by Dr. Jennifer Tookes.

Summer online courses are open to all students but the majority of online Sociology classes in the Fall semester are reserved for students in the online Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies program. Your advisor must submit a special request through the BIS office for consideration for any of the other courses. These are approved on a very limited space-available basis and typically not until just before the semester starts. Make sure you register for something else in the meantime.
