American Studies Mission

The American studies minor is an interdisciplinary program whose central mission is the study of the multifaceted character of the U.S. 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.
