American Studies

As an American studies concentrator, you take a holistic, interdisciplinary look at American culture, examining race, gender, ethnicity, class, sexuality, religion, and political culture in a historical, intellectual, and social context. In addition to required courses and a mentored advanced project, you can choose from an extensive course list in the humanities and social studies.

Dedicated June 13, 1905, the building is in modified Classical form with a low hipped roof, impressive cornice with dentils, red-brick walls, and quoins outlining window areas. The middle section of the facade is framed by two imposing pilasters with six engaged columns within the frame, the pilasters and columns all topped with Ionic capitals.
