An interdisciplinary Master of Arts degree in American Studies is offered by a variety of departments in the humanities and social sciences across the College of Arts and Sciences. Candidates for the master’s degree must complete at least 30 credit hours. In addition to an introductory Theory and Methods course that all incoming students take in their first fall semester, students take two humanities and two social science courses, along with three additional courses of their choosing. Students also take six thesis credits to fulfill the MA thesis requirement. The final thesis can take the form of a long work of scholarship, two shorter papers, or a documentary film.
