American Studies

Program Information

Drawing on the resources of many academic departments, American Studies investigates the complex culture of the United States from a number of different perspectives. These perspectives are: its history, political institutions, literature and art - uncovering important connections that emerge when cultural topics are discussed across disciplinary categories. With guidance from your faculty advisor, the program can be tailored to your interests, and culminates with a senior seminar concentrating on some aspect or period of American life.
