Ne öğreneceğim?

The program’s curriculum is designed to maximize the capacity of IUPUI’s faculty to study America from a variety of disciplines and through a diversity of analytical tools and theories. In this program, a doctoral internship of at least a year will help students not only gain practical experience for post-graduate careers, but will also help structure their curricular choices and provide the foundation for dissertation work. The basic purpose of this program’s curriculum is to keep choices flexible so that students can take courses calibrated to the project crafted through their internship and dissertation. The proposed curriculum below outlines requirements and suggests potential doctoral paths of study for students. Students should leave this program being able to analyze theoretically, measure quantitatively or qualitatively, and present or demonstrate their work digitally.

Core courses (6 hours)

  • AMST-A 601: American Studies in Theory
  • AMST-A 602: American Studies in Practice AMST
  • Doctoral Workshop (Skills workshop for students)

Methods courses (18 hours)

Most departments consistently teach methods courses as part of their graduate programs. As proposed here, such courses will comprise the foundation for the doctoral program in American Studies. The courses are distributed across three categories: analytical, digital, and quantitative/qualitative. Consultation between a student, the chair of the student’s committee, and, if possible, input from the internship director will help determine which courses necessary.

Minor Concentration (12 credits)

Every student will have at least one minor concentration, the list below covers those areas in which minors either already exist or can be easily created. Students also have the option of creating, in consultation with their committee, a minor that brings together courses from a few disciplines.

Giriş koşulları

Amerika gelen öğrenciler için

Successful applicants typically have (a) an undergraduate and graduate grade point average of 3.20 or higher on a 4.00 scale, (b) competitive GRE scores, (c) three favourable letters of recommendation, and (d) a personal statement expressing an interest in addiction neuroscience. Students with undergraduate degrees in psychology or the life sciences (e.g., biology, chemistry, neuroscience) are encouraged to apply, although other degrees along with appropriate course work will be given full consideration on application.

Uluslararası öğrenciler için

Candidates are not required to hold advanced degrees in any particular discipline but this program will most likely attract students holding either a B.A. or M.A. in liberal arts disciplines or related degrees.

For those applicants whose native language is not English, IUPUI requires a 79 on the Internet based TOEFL or 550 on the paper-based TOEFL or a 6.5 on the IELTS or a G011 or higher on the IUPUI EAP Placement Exam taken from within the last two years. However, because of the importance of writing skills on a program with a dissertation requirement applicants should typically score above the 70th percentile (i.e., 94 on the Internet-based TOEFL). Final decisions on admission shall be made by the American Studies Advisory Committee.
