The department is well known at Carleton and beyond for its welcoming atmosphere and sense of community. There is a vibrant social life and you can get involved and meet people by joining the Sociology and Anthropology Graduate Student Caucus, which organizes many social events such as pub nights, hikes, and trivia. There are graduate student soccer and softball teams. Here’s our departmental event calendar. We are proud to offer the support of a departmental graduate student Self-Care and Wellness Mentor, a TA Mentor, and a departmental Graduate Transitions Mentor who helps Ph.D. and M.A. students prepare for the job market post-graduation.
