Welcome to SAC! The Department of Sociology, Anthropology and Criminology, or "SAC" as it is mostly called, takes pride in being an integral part of Eastern Michigan University's undergraduate experience and providing excellent programs at the graduate level. SAC is the vibrant environment for more than twenty full-time tenure-line faculty, a large number of experienced part-time lecturers, its administration and the more than 800 students who have chosen one of our undergraduate majors or graduate programs:

  • Anthropology BA
  • Criminology BA
  • Sociology BS
  • MA in Criminology
  • MA in Sociology
  • Schools, Society and Violence; interdisciplinary master's program
  • Cultural Museum Studies; interdisciplinary graduate certificate

Besides the growing number of students focusing on one of SAC's programs, thousands of EMU undergraduate students sign up for SAC classes every year to earn credits for the university's undergraduate general education program.

Whether students meet SAC's instructors in a small seminar with a dozen students or in a general education class with a hundred, we will provide them with excellent instruction. I invite you to explore SAC's programs and instructors on this website. If you have any questions about our undergraduate programs, I encourage you to contact one of our program advisors. If you are considering our graduate program offerings, I encourage you to contact the graduate coordinator in question. We will be happy to answer your questions.
