The Anthropology and Sociology program offered by the Faculty of Social Sciences, UNIMAS is designed to introduce students to a variety of theories, concepts and perspectives that inform the studies of anthropology and sociology. Its teaching and learning strategies are directed and relevant to the communities in Sarawak particularly, and Borneo as a whole. This approach helps to explore the themes of cultural diversity and social aspects that are unique to the societies in Borneo. Furthermore, students will be challenged to deploy critical reasoning and methodology when examining and debating contemporary issues such as globalisation, inequality, marginalisation, social transformation, sustainable development and environment.

Through engagement with these approaches, the program aims to produce graduates who are analytically competent and sensitive to current problems. Graduates in the discipline will have a firm grounding in the research specialization namely of Gender, Ethnicity and Belief System and Indigenous Knowledge. Overall, the program is set to become a forefront of anthropological and sociological studies and research on Borneo.
