What is Sociology?

April 26, 2023

Sociology is a field of study that offers much more than just an understanding of the social world we live in. It provides a comprehensive insight into human behavior, social structures, and social change in a constantly evolving world. Katherine Castiello Jones, the undergraduate program director of the sociology department within UC’s College of Arts and Sciences, attests to its everyday significance. “Sociology is everywhere,” she says. “It can help us understand all different facets of our everyday lives. Sociology is very useful because it helps us make connections between our own individual experiences and the larger social forces that are having impacts on our lives.”


What is Anthropology?

April 20, 2023

When you think of anthropology, your mind may wander to popular media depictions of the discipline presented in television shows and movies like “Bones,” “Star Trek,” “Indiana Jones” and “Midsommar.” While there may be some truth to these portrayals, these are highly fictionalized accounts of the field of anthropology. If you’re interested in the subject you, may be asking yourself ‘what is anthropology, and what does an anthropologist actually do?’ A degree offered through UC’s College of Arts and Sciences, anthropology is an interdisciplinary major that investigates various aspects of the human condition and offers a range of career and post-graduate options. Anthropologists have an unbounded view of human history and evolution. They study the diverse origins, evolutionary pathways, and contemporary lives of humans across the globe. As careful observers of humans in their everyday surroundings, anthropologists often conduct intensive fieldwork to understand the complex interplays between individuals and the world around them. Anthropology offers both undergraduate and graduate degrees and provides students with a unique combination of analytical skills and experiential engagement with the complexities of global human diversity.

Co-ops allow UC undergrad to explore passions, career path

March 29, 2023

According to national studies, as many as 75% to 85% of undergraduate students will change their major at least once before earning their degree. One in ten undergraduate students will change their major more than once throughout their college career. With over 40 majors to choose from in the University of Cincinnati’s College of Arts and Sciences, declaring a major can be a comprehensive process. Fourth year undergraduate student Maggie Sweeney found her perfect fit in the International Affairs program. “I used my resources at UC and looked into a couple different majors,” said Sweeney. “International affairs stuck out to me because it is an interdisciplinary major and all my interests in history, language, and social justice were encompassed into one major as a whole.”
