Three unique fields of study on the human condition...

The Department of Sociology, Anthropology and Philosophy at NKU is composed of three programs that examine the human condition. Each program offers a bachelor's degree and one or more minor in these three unique fields of study:

  • Sociology focuses on the scientific study of human society and social relations.

  • Anthropology studies both past and present people's material remains (archaeological anthropology), biology (biological/physical anthropology), culture (cultural anthropology), and language (linguistic anthropology).

  • Philosophy explores the values and beliefs that affect human conduct and examines the fundamental questions about our existence.
