The Department of Cultural and Social Studies houses the disciplines of sociology and anthropology as well as the independent interdisciplinary programs of Social Work, Health Administration and Policy, and Justice and Peace Studies. We strive to achieve the unique goals and objectives for each of our areas of study while also reflecting the goals of Creighton's Jesuit Catholic mission. We as faculty are dedicated to research, teaching and service. Our special contribution to student centered learning is increasing our students' awareness of society and culture as contexts that shape the quality of human life. All of our programs aim to develop students as agents of social change through close collaboration in student research, service and learning. We are an integrated department, assisting students as they prepare for a variety of careers.
