About the Program
The American Studies program provides opportunities for students who wish to understand and draw upon the richness and diversity of American culture. It offers a solid foundation in American literature and history, accompanied by a study of related areas such as American politics or religion, the arts in America, or the sociology or economics of American life. The program provides considerable flexibility, allowing special interests to be explored in depth. Drawing on the offerings of several departments, interested students may complete a minor in American Studies.
