Historical Note

From 1906 to 1924 Sociology classes were taught in the Economics department. In 1924 Sociology became its own department. In 1944 the department changed its name to Sociology and Anthropology. In 1964 the name changed to the Sociology department when anthropology separated from it. The Sociology Department is currently administered by the College of Social Science.
