The AMST program accepts applications for specific tracks; unlike more traditional programs, we do not admit students to a general American Studies doctoral program. Please contact the director of AMST to speak about how to create a track with external organizations and internal research centers. Applicants interested in applying for one or more of the tracks should apply through IUPUI’s graduate school and specify in their application for which track or tracks they wish to be considered. In their application materials, applicants should address in as much detail as possible, their interest in and qualifications for specific tracks. The program is less concerned about the methodological backgrounds of applicants except in those cases where specialized skills are essential for the work required in the doctoral track. All of the tracks are financial partnerships between American Studies and research centers and/or external partners.

Tracks will either offer full-time benefits (tuition + stipend) or part-time benefits (tuition). Please contact the director if you have questions.

Tracks for AY 2022-2023 will be posted in the fall 2021. The program also welcomes inquires from prospective students who have ideas for tracks that link together campus research centers and external organizations.
