Graduate Admissions

Due to the ongoing consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Yale American Studies program has decided to pause doctoral admissions for one year, and will not be accepting applications this fall. This decision reflects our considered commitment to support students already enrolled in the program, and our wish to provide the resources for their study, health, and welfare. We plan to resume admissions in the Fall 2021 to admit a class for 2022-23.

We will also pause admissions for one year to our MA program and to Combined PhD programs with Department of African American StudiesFilm & Media Studies Program, and Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies.

We thank you for your interest in American Studies at Yale University.
