Sociology/Anthropology and Inderdisciplinary Programs
The Sociology/Anthropology department is, itself, an interdisciplinary program. Our Sociology/Anthropology program is one of the few in the country to completely incorporate both disciplines in all aspects of the program.
In addition, a number of our Sociology/Anthropology courses are cross-listed as interdisciplinary course offerings and the Sociology/Anthropology faculty teach and actively participate in the following interdisciplinary programs: Women's Studies, Environmental Studies, Black Studies, Latin American and Caribbean Studies, International Studies, Service Learning and Off Campus Studies.
Undergraduate and Graduate Fellowship and Scholarship Opportunities
Information on the Rhodes Scholarship, Marshall Scholarship, Fulbright Scholarship, truman Scholarship, James Madison Scholarship, National Science Foundation fellowships, Mellon fellowships, and many more are available through the Honors Program
The Department has access to the University's VAX mainframe, Macintosh micro-computers, DOS PCs, INTERNET, a computerized library system, the Statistical Package for the Social Sciences, a human services data base for comparative research and a variety of other computer software.

Library and Information Technology Resources
In 1995 the organization of the Leonard H. Jordan Jr. Library was completed. Unique to the Sociology/Anthropology Department, our library is cataloged under the Library of Congress system as is the Denison University Library. It contains books, senior research projects, and materials for sociology/anthropology classes. The Leonard H. Jordan Jr. Library is monitored by student employees and is open to all students.
Information on Library and Information Technology Resources is available through Denison's Course Catalog.
The American Sociological Association and the American Anthropological Association websites provide information including career and employment opportunities for students with undergraduate degrees in Sociology/Anthropology, resources for students and professionals, publications, and the Associations' research and positions on current issues.
