The Bachelor of Arts with a Major in American Studies prepares students for careers where strong analytical and communication skills are valued alongside creativity and global awareness. American Studies majors critically examine American life in a curriculum that emphasizes innovative service-learning, historical knowledge and contemporary theoretical approaches to engage actively with the community and region. As the world grows increasingly interdependent, American Studies programs foster a deep historical, cultural and sociological understanding of the position of the United States in a global culture and economy.
American Studies graduates thrive in fields such as Journalism, Mass Communication, Marketing, Education, Technical Writing, Conservation Management, and Environmental Management. The American Studies program also prepares students for graduate programs, including those in the arts, humanities, social sciences, law, business, public policy, and education.
History and Political Science:
The History and Political Science Track examines historical perspectives (both national and regional), along with political and public policy approaches, to shape a nuanced understanding of America, and its identity in a domestic and global context.
