About the Department
In today’s global world, it is essential that professionals in a range of industries understand organizations, societies and the challenges of multiculturalism. Our faculty teach and research in a broad range of areas within the social sciences and apply our work to both theoretical and practical advancements in organizational and cross-cultural management.
Students who complete the program earn a B.A. in Sociology and Anthropology and a second major of their choice. Qualified students can enter our direct-track M.A. in Organizational Development and Consulting.
YVC and its Department of Sociology and Anthropology invest significant energy and resources in establishing and maintaining ongoing academic dialogues with colleagues outside of Israel. These academic interactions keep professors and students abreast of new developments, expand their horizons of inquiry, and encourage collaborative research and applied projects.
In addition to engaging in dozens of ongoing collaborations in the United States and Europe, YVC is a partner in the IRIS project, a European Union initiative aimed at fostering stronger ties between Israeli academic colleges and European academic institutions.
