American Studies

The following examples show the wide latitude permitted to students in selection of courses.  Combined with accessible advising, this feature can help you tailor your major to your own interests.

1) One student shaped his American Studies major to combine American anthropology and environmental science, and added a minor in secondary education. He won admission to a Study Abroad program in British Columbia, living with and learning from Native people of the Northwest Coast.

2) A student designed his American Studies major to combine American literature, history, and sociology.  He plans to write and Honors thesis on the evolution of Concord, Massachusetts, as a 19th century cultural center.

3) Another student included political science, history, and music in her American Studies program in order to develop a research project on politics and art in the Broadway theater.
