Our now discontinued American and New England Studies program at the University of Southern Maine provided 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 had its own dedicated faculty and curriculum. The curriculum was both regionally and nationally focused, examining questions of New England and American identity and experience through a variety of critical perspectives.
