American Studies is an interdisciplinary program focused upon the multi-faceted culture and civilization of United States. The program integrates the study of fields such as history, literature, politics, art, philosophy, and religion in an effort to create a better understanding of the nation we call united.

The concentration in American Studies is like a minor; but, unlike a minor that is contained in one specific discipline, the American Studies concentration is interdisciplinary. If you complete a concentration in American Studies, your transcript will reflect this upon graduation.
