The American and New England Studies program at the University of Southern Maine provides a wide ranging, interdisciplinary course of study leading to the degree of Master of Arts. Unlike many interdisciplinary graduate programs at other universities, our program has its own dedicated faculty and curriculum. Our faculty are all nationally recognized in their fields, and the seminar format of our classes ensures that students receive individualized attention. Our curriculum is both regionally and nationally focused, examining questions of New England and American identity and experience through a variety of critical perspectives. More about ANES
