The field of American Studies integrates knowledge and critical perspectives from disciplines across the Liberal Arts – including history, political science, sociology, religion, and the humanities – to refine students’ understanding of the diverse cultural perspectives and practices that shape American culture. Along with offering them opportunities to grow as critical thinkers, engaged citizens, and effective speakers, writers, and researchers, an American Studies degree readies students for further study in a bachelor’s program or higher. American Studies graduates are well-prepared for careers in education, law, government service, social work, journalism, business, and more.
