Baker Hall

Houses the Department of Anthropology, School of Criminal Justice and School of Social Work

Found steps away from the Red Cedar River and Snyder-Philips Hall, Baker Hall is home to the Department of Anthropology, School of Criminal Justice and the School of Social Work at Michigan State. Each of these areas of study offer both undergraduate and graduate degrees.  

The Department of Anthropology is a highly interconnected, diverse, theoretically engaged and practice-oriented research and teaching program. Students learn about how biology, culture and environment interact and impact the human experience and work to make a difference in the lives of people both globally and locally.

The School of Criminal Justice is the oldest continuous degree-granting criminal justice program in the United States. Each year the school conducts cutting-edge research to understand problems and emerging risks in areas like firearm violence, cybercrime, environmental crime and product counterfeiting, while also engaging with policymakers to advance justice. Students with a degree in criminal justice can be found working in local, state, national, international, public and private careers.

As part of the College of Social Science, the School of Social Work has accredited Bachelor of Social Work and Master of Social Work and field education programs. The school is also committed to educating students on ethical, competent, responsive and innovative social work practice, as well as conducting high-quality research that will improve the well-being of the most vulnerable in society. Students can find advising for the College of Social Science in Berkey Hall, just down the road on West Circle Drive.
