Welcome to American Studies

The extensive and wide-ranging publications of our diverse faculty illustrate the richness of the field.  From Native wampum belts to rock ‘n’ roll, from urban fashion to 9/11 memorials, American Studies examines a range of materials to emphasize integrated approaches to the study of American history and culture.

 

Our faculty is dedicated to helping students learn to write well, to speak articulately, and to think analytically and creatively. These are skills necessary for success in any field. We are a small department, and we give students a great deal of individual attention. We try to maintain a small-college atmosphere within our enormous state university.
