Housed within the interdisciplinary World Languages, Literatures, and Cultures department, anthropology serves as a foundation for many majors at MBC. The senior seminar and thesis is written in a joint class with language and area studies majors. This cross-disciplinary discussion is unique to Mary Baldwin. Students also benefit from the requirement that one course be taken off campus or abroad.
Students can pursue a BA with a major in Anthropology/Sociology. Anthropology also is available as a minor.
Anthropology is a part of MBC’s School of Social Sciences, Business, and Global Studies and the Anthropology/Sociology major is available through the College for Women in Staunton and through the Adult Degree Program in Charlottesville, Rappahannock, Richmond, Roanoke, South Boston, Staunton, Weyers Cave, and Williamsburg.
