The Sociocultural Anthropology program at the University of Oklahoma has been engaged in research and teaching on Native North America. Additionally, sociocultural professors conduct and supervise research in Latin America and elsewhere.


About the Sociocultural Anthropology program

The Department has a long history of collaborative relationships with tribal communities in Oklahoma. The resulting research has helped to support tribal goals of attaining or maintaining federal recognition, documenting tribal histories and languages, providing better health care, reviving and repatriating material culture and stories, and establishing tribal cultural studies and native language education programs. This collaboration contributes to student field research opportunities in the areas of historical anthropology, medicine, genealogy, politics, sociolinguistics, and oral history.

The department offers degrees in Sociocultural Anthropology at the B.A., M.A., and Ph.D. levels.  At the MA level, students can elect to take an MA in Anthropology with a Concentration in Sociocultural Anthropology at the University of Oklahoma.  For more information on degrees and requirements at the undergraduate level, see our undergraduate program description.  For more information on degrees and requirements at the graduate level, see our graduate program description.
