Academic Advice

We strongly encourage all students signed up for or interested in the American Studies Major to talk to the Director of Undergraduate Studies about tailoring a program to meet your needs, interests and circumstances.

Transfer Credit Policy

The Director of Undergraduate Studies for the Department of Transnational Studies, who is a member of the department's full-time teaching faculty, is available to meet with students throughout the semester.

Students interested in doing a major or minor in the American Studies program are encouraged to speak with the director to discuss their interests in the program, as well as to plan course sequencing to meet all criteria.
