The American Studies program offers a baccalaureate degree and a minor. American Studies is the interdisciplinary study of American cultures, both past and present. American Studies courses examine the arts, literature, history, and popular culture of the United States and, more generally, North America. American Studies provides a strong foundation and essential skills for those preparing for careers in law, government, public history, archival management, education, social service, journalism, publishing, and communications. Individual courses in American Studies are recommended as cultural background for students in any major.
