The Minor

The culture of the United States is a distinctive blend of traditions and institutions from around the globe with innovations and concepts unique to this country. The American studies program offers students an understanding of how America’s many cultures contribute to the tapestry of American society. Through the study of interpretive works, folklore and folk life, and fine and popular culture, American studies minors celebrate the diversity of American experiences and examine difficult questions about race, gender, class and other factors that affect American lives.
