The American Studies Program has not one director but two Co-Directors from the two foundational disciplines:


Dr. Karen Ward Mahar (Left, Professor of History), and   Dr. Christiane Farnan (Right, Associate Professor of English).   


January 2010 to January 2012:  Dr. Mahar is the primary Director and instructor of AMST450 and AMST451.

American Studies majors and minors are advised by either Dr. Farnan or Dr. Mahar. 


Courses that count toward the American Studies major or minor are taken in a variety of disciplines, and thus faculty are drawn from throughout the College.
