The Master of Arts in American Studies is an interdisciplinary study of the American experience and culture.

  • Anthropology
  • Cherokee and Indigenous Studies
  • Communication
  • Criminal Justice
  • English
  • Geography
  • History
  • Political Science
  • Sociology
  • Women’s and Gender Studies

The Master of Arts in American Studies consists of two (2) core courses in the scope and methods of American Studies. Students then work with a faculty committee to develop an individualized course of study in the following concentrations: American Cultural Studies, American History or American Politics.

Graduates of the program find careers in a variety of areas such as education (high-school and community college level), government or civil service, museums, law, communications and business.
