The American Studies Program's faculty is made up from faculty members from departments around the University. Perhaps the most important element to this is that American Studies faculty are highly qualified in their specific fields of research as well as being skilled in guiding students to learning through their own research disciplines in addition to providing guidance within American Studies' expansive disciplinary framework.

The faculty is made up of professors from History, Government, English, Film and Media Studies, The Sciences and Communication, Culture, and Technology as well as other majors throughout the University.

The Annual American Studies Picnic serves as an opportunity for faculty and students to interact casually.
