Program/Course: American Studies  

Students in the American Studies major study US culture and its local, regional, national, and global forms and effects. Our methods are interdisciplinary and creative—meaning we combine the best approaches from the traditional disciplines, often to ask unconventional questions of unconventional sources.

We are also an intellectual community committed to fostering interactions between undergraduates and faculty members.

Join us to explore one of our three concentrations - Southern Studies, Popular and Visual Culture, and Race and Ethnicity - or meet with one of our core faculty members to design your own curriculum.
