Student Experience

A welcoming + vibrant community

Our department offers a close-knit professional home base within a campus that features remarkable opportunities across every discipline. We offer opportunities to engage in fascinating classes, develop translatable skills, conduct service learning in our community, and prepare for diverse career paths.

Our students are interested in impacting public debate, policy, and decisions concerning our understanding of the various cultures of the Americas. While focused on American Studies, we emphasize the value of a transnational approach, putting our work into a global context. We also consider the history of our discipline, all the while envisioning new directions for inquiry and collaboration.
