Stockton’s American Studies program at the Stockton University provides an advanced interdisciplinary degree for students seeking professional and personal advancement through the liberal arts. The degree and certificate programs are tailored to fit a variety of career goals as well as to provide preparation for professional degrees or doctoral programs in the humanities and social sciences. 


American Studies asks what it means to be “American.” It interrogates the forces that hold Americans together, while also recognizing that “America” has always been a contested category whose meaning has changed over time. American Studies at Stockton is also decidedly transnational--emphasizing hemispheric, diasporic, and transatlantic approaches to American history and culture.

The American Studies program builds on Stockton University’s long-standing commitment to the  interdisciplinary education of scholars. The program’s faculty members are respected scholars in traditional disciplines, such as literature, history, art history, and communications, as well as interdisciplinary fields, including Latin American and Caribbean studies, women’s, gender, and sexuality studies, Native American studies, Africana studies, Jewish studies, postcolonial studies, and studies of American culture and the environment.


Degree and certificate candidates could seek careers -- or enrich their careers -- in public relations, education, law, market research, journalism, government, museums, auction houses, libraries, and nonprofit work. The program’s international approach to American studies will, furthermore, prepare graduates with skills to understand globalization and the relationship of the United States with different parts of the world.
