I received my diploma from the University of Southern Maine in Spring 2006. I now have a Master's degree in American & New England Studies. Now that I have finished, I should be able to tell you what one does with a Master's in American & New England Studies. I will use my graduate level training to answer: "One is able to reflect on the interconnectiveneness of the reciprocity of dialectical imperatives enclosed in the ideological codification of perceptional, nay, liminal, social processes in which commodification, marginalization and imperialistic contracts are envisioned."
Oh, and lots, lots more.
In fact, I have been able to teach courses such as New England Folklore and Working Women in America due to my degree 😃
