Interdisciplinary and flexible in nature, this program allows you to delve into the broad and niche explorations of American Studies: Who we are and why we are, and how various cultures weave together to create E Pluribus Unum. Working closely with faculty in several departments, you’ll reach a new, holistic understanding of our complex country. American Studies is offered as both a major and minor.
