American Studies

Designed to encourage and support the interdisciplinary study of American culture, the program draws upon faculty expertise in various disciplines and promotes understanding of the institutions, values, and beliefs that have shaped the experiences of U.S. residents. Students are encouraged to construct an interdisciplinary major focusing on their own interests, such as urban studies, ethnicity, media, religion, gender roles, environmental thought, or another aspect of the American experience.

You can major in this subject.
