St. Norbert College currently offers a minor only in American Studies. The American Studies minor is an interdisciplinary academic program whose central mission is the study of the multifaceted character of the United States from a variety of intellectual perspectives: cultural, political, religious, philosophical, sociological, literary and historical. Students examine key aspects of American experience—including the arts, work, leisure, family, gender, race and ethnicity. Drawing on various disciplines, students will come to understand and integrate the methodologies and questions of the field.
The American Studies minor allows students to take courses in several different disciplines, encouraging them to think broadly about American culture. These courses hone students’ critical thinking skills, helping them prepare for the rigors of post-undergraduate life. The minor can serve to further specify a major in another field—such as English, sociology or history, for example—by focusing specifically on America and its issues. On the other hand, the minor can complement students’ majors in other fields, such as the natural sciences, by offering American coursework in the humanities and social sciences.
