Major in American Studies
The major offers a broad grounding in the study of the United States by integrating a rich array of materials, themes, and approaches from many fields. It encourages students to view the U.S. from international, cross-cultural, and comparativist perspectives. The program provides students with rigorous training in the methods of interdisciplinary work while also allowing them the flexibility to pursue their own intellectual interests and goals. Our program encourages students to engage in experiential learning through research, volunteer opportunities, and internships.
Because of the capstone project that is part of AMER 4960, AMER majors will automatically fulfill their immersion requirement. No separate immersion project is necessary. For more information, contact Professor Gabriel A. Torres Colón or Professor Paul Stob.
The Major in American Studies consists of 30 hours of course work:
