Preparing the Next Generation of Sociologists and Anthropologists
WELCOME STATEMENT FROM THE DEPARTMENT CHAIR
Welcome to the Department of Sociology, Anthropology, and Criminology Website! Here we provide up-to-date information about our department and our programs and activities, including student activities.
To our students, we say you’ve made an important decision to earn higher education, a decision that, for years to come, you and your family will always be proud of. The late Nelson Mandela of South Africa, one of the historic figures, whom I admire so much for his stance on social justice issues, says education is an important tool needed for transforming our world. Indeed, education is very important. To change our world requires understanding humanity, social interactions, and social institutions. Sociology, Anthropology, and Criminology are among the disciplines or fields of study that allow us to deeply understand humanity, human relationships and interactions, and social institutions.
A degree in Sociology, Anthropology, or Criminology provides the platform and opportunity for one to impact the world in significant ways. Your decision to pursue a career in one of these three disciplines is a good, laudable decision. I therefore challenge you to take the opportunity more seriously.
Remember, as Prince Nico Mbarga rightly says in his song, the best opportunities come but once in life. You may never have this opportunity! I challenge you to prioritize your study. Don’t be distracted. You are here for a purpose: to gain an education for you, for your family, for your community, and for humanity. Never forget why you decided to enter the University of Liberia and the Department of Sociology, Anthropology, & Criminology in particular. Remain focused on your goal and let it be your guidepost.
Again, welcome to the Department of Sociology, Anthropology, & Criminology.
