The USU Sociology program offers PhD-level specializations in Environment & Community, Demography, and Social Inequality. Located in the beautiful Cache Valley in northern Utah, USU is a perfect base from which to conduct research (and recreate!) in the diverse mountain and desert regions of the Intermountain West. We offer MS and PhD degrees in Sociology, and provide strong training in social theory and research methods together with coursework and research opportunities exploring a wide range of issues. A number of our faculty members are engaged in research ventures involving colleagues across the USU campus, as well as other US and international collaborators. Many students also engage in interdisciplinary training through coursework available across the USU campus.
