Peer Advising

  • If you are contemplating the American Studies major, but have questions that might best be answered by a student already in the major...
  • If you are an AmStud major and wondering how other students feel about their chosen courses, thematic concentrations or career paths/employment prospects...
  • If you have a question about your advisor or simply want to share with another student...

American Studies offers a program that appoints several student representatives each year who are also peer advisers - AmStud majors who are eager to share their experience and knowledge with you.  Please feel free to contact them with your questions or suggestions for student activities.
