Message from the Chair

Thomas DohertyWelcome to the website of the American Studies Program. With our commitment to undergraduate teaching and advising, our engagement with interdisciplinary scholarship, and our spirit of collegiality and hospitality, this program has been an ornament of Brandeis University and its liberal arts curriculum.

I invite readers of this site to inform themselves about us more fully by noting links to our academic requirements, our affiliated programs, and profiles of our faculty and administrative staff. The site also provides a brief history of American Studies at Brandeis.

We welcome your input and comments and look forward to meeting you and working with you in the challenging, shared enterprise of understanding the American experience in all its varieties.

Thomas Doherty,

Chair, American Studies Program
