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.

Spring/Summer Registration Information

Registration for the 2019 Spring and Summer terms begins October 29th. 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 Ms. Eileen Swan (Statesboro) or Ms. Ashlie Tyson (Armstrong). The office staff will not register you for classes unless you are experiencing an error with which you need help.

Summer online courses are open to all students but the majority of online Sociology classes in the Spring semester are reserved for students in the online Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies program. Only SOCI 2130 01F and SOCI 4232 01F are open to all students. 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 not until just before the semester starts. Make sure you register for something else in the meantime.
