The multidisciplinary American studies major is designed for students whose interests in American history, society, and culture cut across departmental and divisional lines.
At least two courses of the six area courses must be chosen from the Social Sciences cluster and two from the American Culture cluster. Representative Social Science and American Culture classes are listed below.
After earning 90 credits, each American studies major should take ANTH 1955 , HIST 1955 , PS 1955 , or ENGLIT 1950 to fulfill the capstone course requirement.
All students majoring in American studies are strongly advised to complete courses in a second language through the intermediate level.
