Diploma in American Studies Program
The Diploma Program in American Studies is a competitive, one-year certificate program for international students. This unique interdisciplinary program is open to students, both male and female, of advanced undergraduate or graduate standing.
Students take a full course load throughout the entire academic year and complete a significant research project. The program is dedicated to the study of American society and culture, which is both historical and critical. It contributes to a deeper, more specialized understanding of American society and possibilities for life-long lessons and friendships. In keeping with the tradition of wide-ranging, interdisciplinary research in American studies, diploma students arrive at Smith with a diverse array of scholarly interests and work together to fashion an extraordinarily vibrant and creative intellectual community.
