rhlabbasinejad Posted August 20, 2017 Share Posted August 20, 2017 (edited) Hi everybody, I know that it seems a pretty lame question to ask, by I am really confused about the differences between Sociocultural Anthropology and Sociology! I know that the main difference is in their methodology, but how far this will exactly affect their studies? How can I realize that I am more inclined to the sociocultural anthropology or sociology? My undergraduate studies is in Engineering, and I wanted to change my major to social sciences, mainly sociology, and did not know much about Sociocultural Anthropology. But then I started MA program in Science and Technology studies in which I took two courses from Anthro department, and they both became my favorites, so I thought maybe I have to go for Anthro instead of Sociology. But I cannot make sure what to do? I once liked Sociology ( read some texts and audited some courses), and then I participated in two anthro courses ( you know how much it differs when you audit a course or enroll in one). I am going to apply for Fall 2018 Ph.D. programs, and I have to decide between these two as soon as possible. P.S: My MRP is more related to the anthropology of infrastructures.
