American Studies is an interdisciplinary field dedicated to the study of American culture in a global context. American Studies graduates are prepared to collaboratively solve complex problems using a mixture of career-ready skills, leadership development, and intercultural fluency.
American Studies majors critically examine American life in a curriculum that emphasizes innovative service-learning, historical knowledge and contemporary approaches to actively engage the community and region. American Studies programs foster a deep historical, cultural, and sociological understanding of the position of the United States in the global marketplace.
