The American Studies Certificate gives students a critical understanding of America through an interdisciplinary framework. It emphasizes the political, cultural, and social structures of the United States through classes in fields such as literature, history, and political science. Students study the United States in a global context by investigating the U.S. role in the world as well as pathways of migration and diaspora. Students also employ a variety of critical lenses, including race, gender, sexuality, and class. The American Studies Certificate is an eighteen-hour course of study and can be substituted for a minor.
