About the Program

The American Studies graduate program at the University of Massachusetts Boston has earned a national reputation as one of the top MA programs in the field. Our graduate program in American Studies centers on a core of courses focused on the contested meanings of culture, citizenship, democracy, community, politics, race, gender, and sexuality in the United States. We offer a flexible program of study designed to introduce students to various interdisciplinary approaches to historical analysis and to enable students to undertake their own research projects. Faculty specializations include comparative race, ethnicity and culture; literature and history; popular culture; queer/sexuality studies; cultural studies; American popular music; and travel and tourism.
