The Graduate Program in American Studies at Rutgers University-Newark will hold an open house for prospective students on Tuesday, May 20 from 5:30-7:30 pm in 245 Conklin Hall. Our program explores American politics, culture and society in our backyard and around the world. We also encourage work in public humanities and oral history.

Our open house is geared for prospective MA students who seek to begin coursework in the fall of 2014; we will admit MA applicants on a rolling basis until July 1. However, prospective students with an interest in doctoral studies are also welcome.
