About Us

Established in 1929, PSA is the oldest and largest regional sociological association in the United States. PSA promotes networking and professional development by providing a venue for sharing research, teaching practices and applied work. The annual spring meeting hosts a slate of 200 sessions that attracts sociologists from the Pacific coast, Transmountain West, Canada, Mexico and beyond. PSA members note the informal and collegial culture that includes faculty members, graduate students and undergraduate students from a range of higher education institution types, as well as professional sociologists working in non-academic settings. PSA is also known for its quarterly journal, Sociological Perspectives, one of the top regional general sociology journals. - See more at:
