American Studies is the ideal major for students who are interested in the world around them but who don’t want to limit themselves to just one method or perspective. Take courses on anything from “The American West” and “American Capitalism” to “Race and Popular Culture” and “Catholics in America” and much, much more. After all, why should you limit yourself?

American Studies is a student-centered major that fosters a vibrant academic community. Our graduates find success in some of the most interesting career fields, graduate programs, and service programs.

Our students love our intellectually provocative curriculum that tackles real-world issues, our brilliant but approachable faculty, and the tightly-knit relationships formed between students and professors in this remarkable department.
