Welcome to Sociology, Anthropology, and Social Work

The Department of Sociology, Anthropology, and Social Work provides the broad base of the liberal arts foundation in social sciences that is central to the education of all Texas Tech University students. Through our three programs in social sciences we prepare lifelong learners, informed citizens, and problem solvers for an increasingly globalized community. The Department, through its excellence in teaching, programs of research, scholarship, creative activities, and outreach, promotes all aspects of a liberal arts experience. Please explore our website to learn more about our degree programs, our faculty, and the opportunities we offer students at home and abroad.
