American studies is the interdisciplinary study of the United States. Majors and minors analyze American history and experience through a variety of different disciplines in order to gain insight into the multiplicity of cultures, ideas and institutions that make up the nation. They draw on departments and programs, such as African and African American studies, American Catholic studies, art history and music, English, history, Latin American and Latino studies, philosophy, political science, urban studies, and sociology. Those majoring or minoring in American studies have in common, however, the desire to link these perspectives into a complex view of the nation and its culture.
American studies is a small program and admission is competitive basedon grades and a faculty reference. Students seeking to enter the program meet with the director to obtain an application and entrance information.
