Welcome to Utah State University and the Office of Research and Graduate Studies!
As you engage in the study of a graduate degree under the guidance of the faculty of this research-intensive university, you’ll leap into a world of curiosity, investigation, and query — into a world of exploration, creativity, and insight.
In our laboratories, you will learn new analysis and techniques under the training of top research scientists. On our performance stages, you will explore new steps and voices of interpretation under masters of their art. In our fields, you will study crops for a new and hungry world under the guidance of a new age of agriculturalists. And in our environment, you will study this complex world of man and nature under the guidance of the finest ecologists in their disciplines. At this university, you can study anything from the smallest soil microbe to the largest galaxy in the sky!
I also invite you to explore the beauty of Logan and northern Utah. I hope you agree that this is one of the more beautiful locations in the world and the strength of USU matches its beautiful surroundings.
