What Stockton University says about their program:
"The Sociology (SOCY) program focuses on the analysis of human beings as members of societies. The Anthropology (ANTH) program broadens this focus to the study of human cultures worldwide.
Stockton’s SOCY/ANTH program emphasizes the method of research common to both sociology and anthropology—the field method—but provides work in survey, historical, and experimental methods as well. Substantively, the program is particularly concerned with the ways people are influenced by and react to dominant-subordinate relationships such as those manifested in ethnicity/race, class, gender and/or age. The dominant perspective of the program is comparative and international.
