Mission

American Studies is an interdisciplinary exploration, with an emphasis on history and literature, of the voices and visions that interpret and, in turn, shape the American experience.

American Studies is the interdisciplinary exploration of American culture. Situated at the intersection of historical and cultural analyses, students in American Studies interrogate the multiple voices and visions that have shaped American culture both past and present, and analyze debates over the meaning of American identity and culture in the United States and in transnational contexts.
