Answered on May 09, 2023

sir, i am a journalist in Newspaper The Hitavada over a decade and done my masters in sociology from affiliated university of Chhattisgarh with 70 percent marks. I had given NET December 2022 and scored 186 and only of 10 marks i have failed to qualify for it. once again i am preparing for NET-June 2023 but sir I want to do PhD from universities of USA. Is there is any opportunity for me to do research at sociology in US university. please help what is the process as I am living in Raipur and here no proper education consultant is available to guide me universities of US that offer PhD in sociology and how the process to get enroll there for PhD program in Sociology
Ans: There are many universities in the US that offer PhD programs in sociology. Some of the top-ranked programs include the University of California-Berkeley, Harvard University, Princeton University, and Stanford University. However, there are many other great programs to consider as well. You can start by researching universities and programs online to find the ones that are the best fit for your research interests and career goals. You can find contact information for each university's sociology department on their website, and you can also try emailing or calling them to ask questions. Applying to a PhD program in the US can be a lengthy and competitive process. You will typically need to submit transcripts, letters of recommendation, a statement of purpose, and a writing sample, among other materials. Make sure you have all of the necessary documents prepared and that you understand the application deadlines and requirements for each program you are interested in. I would also suggest to work with an education consultant
