More Reasons to Consider the Program

All students who have taken American Studies 110 or 110W and received a grade of B or better are qualified to declare an American Studies major or minor.  Many students have already taken a sufficient or almost sufficient number of the courses that meet American Studies requirements, but are unaware that these courses can be grouped and provide you with recognition on your diploma of a useful major or minor.

Because the American Studies major or minor carries appeal with future employers, attesting to your qualifications in an interdisciplinary field, it is wise to collect this credential if you already have the courses or are close to having them. The minor requires 5 courses in addition to 110 or 110W, in departments as diverse as History, Political Science, English, Urban Studies, Drama, Theater and Dance, Art History, Music, Philosophy, Anthropology, Economics, Sociology, Ethnic Studies. The major requires a total of 12 courses. It is possible to double-major, for example, in English or History and American Studies.

If you think that you might be close to an American Studies major or minor, please be in touch for advisement.
