The Department of Sociology, Anthropology and Health Admistration and Policy

The Department of Sociology, Anthropology, and Health Administration and Policy (SAHAP) is home to undergraduate programs in Sociology (SOCY), Anthropology (ANTH) and Health Administration and Policy (HAPP). We offer minors in Sociology and Anthropology, a Master's in Applied Sociology, as well as a Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in the Nonprofit Sector. An Accelerated Bachelor's/Master's is available, as well as special options for double majors in Sociology and Anthropology, Sociology and Psychology, Sociology and Social Work, and Health Administration and Policy and Social Work. The department collaborates with three outstanding Ph.D. programs, including Gerontology (GERO), Public Policy (PUBL) and Language, Literacy & Culture (LLC) and hosts the Center for Aging Studies (CAS), a research center that conducts large scale, federally-funded research.

Throughout these programs, the department emphasizes three core areas: health & aging in society; diversity, gender & culture; and applied social science research. Consistent with UMBC's goals, the department focuses its core strengths to 1. provide a distinctive undergrad experience, 2. support the development of graduate education, and 3. conduct faculty research that contributes to both undergraduate & graduate education.
