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.

American Studies can equip you for graduate work and careers in law, library work, museology, research, teaching, politics, journalism, publishing, and more.
