American Studies Graduate Program

Overview

American Studies is an interdisciplinary program offering graduate work on society and culture in the United States — past, present, and in global context. It accommodates a variety of individual academic objectives. All students are asked to define a concentration— a period or problem — and to draw on appropriate university resources relating to that area. Students must demonstrate coherence in ther graduate work and be able to show relationships between their concentrations and the wider socio cultural system. To accomplish this, students must develop knowledge (including historical perspective) in the humanities and social sciences. View the Doctoral Program Profile here (PDF).
