Students walking through the academic quad

Goucher's curriculum provides students with analytical skills and research techniques for understanding the cultural diversity of human behavior and social organization. Sociologists and anthropologists study the ways in which individuals, through their collective actions, create and change patterns of social relations. Both disciplines emphasize a critical, historical, and comparative perspective in their study of the way of life in contemporary societies. In their search for understanding, sociologists and anthropologists examine a variety of substantive areas, from family life to globalization and political change.
