Kutztown University Anthropology and Sociology students are not only active on our campus through the Anthropology Club, Sociology Club, and Alpha Kappa Delta (Sociology Honor Society), but are active in our local community and have presented their research at regional and national conferences.

The Anthropology & Sociology programs also have a living learning community for incoming freshman. This learning community will gives students special access to faculty, and introduces younger students to advanced majors that can serve as guides while at Kutztown University.
