Stop sending memes to your friends and start sending them to us! Help researchers analyze digital folklore and track internet trends.
Folklore is the study of informally learned, traditional expressive culture and artistic communication. A primary emphasis in folklore studies is on tradition and the way tradition manifests in the modern world. Courses cover topics such as children's folklore, legends and the supernatural, regional folklore, folk religion, material culture, and internet memes. The folklore program at USU provides a flexible and interdisciplinary approach to study, small class sizes, and student-centered faculty.
