What is American Studies?
The Program in American Studies offers an interdisciplinary approach to the study of the society and cultures of the United States. American Studies majors critically examine the changing narratives and practices of American life in a curriculum that emphasizes both historical breadth and theoretical depth. Majors work closely with American Studies faculty, choosing the right combination of courses that will prepare them to write a uniquely interdisciplinary senior thesis.
