Admission to the American Studies major has been suspended effective July 1, 2012. The suspension restricts new admission to the major for at least two years. Please be aware that new frosh at UC Santa Cruz will not be able to designate American Studies as their major for the time being.  Currently declared majors will be able to complete their degrees as planned. Contact the American Studies Department amst@ucsc.edu for the most current information regarding the status of the undergraduate major program.
