  • Welcome

    The faculty and staff in the department encourage you to peruse our website. Many areas of student questions, concerns and interests are addressed on this site. However, please feel free to come and see us if you have any questions regarding sociology, archaeology, anthropology or criminal justice. The Department of Sociology and Archaeology prides itself on providing students with opportunities to learn and work with faculty in pursuit of educational goals.

    The archaeological studies major at UW-L is one of the largest and highest rated undergraduate archaeology programs in the United States. Students have numerous opportunities to gain hands-on experience in archaeology in the field and in the lab, giving our majors a competitive edge when applying for work or graduate school after completing their Bachelor's degree.

    The sociology major at UW-L provides students with the requisite research, theory and writing skills for the Bachelor's degree in sociology, while additionally offering the opportunity to take a wide selection of elective courses. Opportunities to engage in undergraduate research and explore career paths through internships and volunteer activities are readily available.

    We look forward to hearing from you and having the chance to work together in exploring the diverse fields of archaeology, anthropology, criminal justice, and sociology.
