Sociology, Anthropology, and Social Work


Sociology is the study of human groups and human social activity. It explains and ties together the many dimensions of human life, perhaps most significantly the relationships that you build. Learn more about Luther's sociology program.


The mission of the anthropology program is to create a learning environment through which you can come to understand and appreciate human diversity, develop a critical perspective on your own society, and examine your role as citizens in a complex, global community.

Social Work

Social work is a profession devoted to helping people function the best they can in their environment. This can mean providing direct services to people in their homes or places of work, helping people to help themselves. It also can mean working for change to improve social conditions.
