The interdisciplinary American Studies minor draws courses from several departments across the College of Arts & Sciences.
In addition to the introductory course that all students take, courses from Art History, Black Studies, Communication and Journalism, Education Studies, English, Government, History, Music History, Philosophy, Psychology, Sociology, and Theatre may be used to fulfill the minor requirements. Visit the Academics page for eligible courses in those areas.
This course will examine artistic, social, and political imaginings of America and Americans. We will read works by American and foreign observers of the United States to ask how Americans define themselves and how others see them. Course assignments will introduce students to themes, perspectives, and methods in the field of American Studies.
