  • Testimonial

    American Studies gives me the tools to explore social issues and allows me to recognize our shared and independent experiences. My professors are helping me cultivate an understanding for the world around me and investigate ways to facilitate meaningful inclusion for all the marginalized people in society.

    The Department has been instrumental in shaping the trajectory of my professional career by providing me the opportunity to present my work to faculty and students in a formal setting; serve on University committees; and develop my own syllabi and courses. Most importantly, I  have forged lifelong relationships that  have helped carry me throughout the process of pursuing my graduate education.

    Our department is full of activist scholars. And artist scholars. And artivist scholars. I love that.

    Despite living and working in Baltimore, the Department of American Studies at College Park continues to feel like an academic home. The varieties of scholarship as well as the diversity and critical engagement from fellow graduate students fuel my scholarship – on campus and from afar.
