Format: Campus

Program Description:

The PhD in Global and Sociocultural Studies is an innovative interdisciplinary degree which combines the theories and practices of three key social science disciplines; geography, sociocultural anthropology, and sociology. All students receive interdisciplinary training and the opportunity to focus their coursework and dissertation research in one of the three disciplines. Of the minimum 75 semester hours required for the doctoral degree, 12 comprise the interdisciplinary core, 33 the major discipline, and 30 the electives inside and outside the Department of Global and Sociocultural Studies. Under the new Ph.D. curriculum, students will complete a set of interdisciplinary core courses and then concentrate their remaining course work in one of three majors, Anthropology, Geography, or Sociology. The MA curriculum has a similar interdisciplinary core, but no disciplinary majors.
