American Studies

Develop your understanding of the social, political and cultural contexts of the USA and gain a fascinating insight into one of the world’s most complex and multicultural societies. You’ll explore diverse aspects of American history, literature and film ranging from the colonial period to the present. You can also apply to spend a semester of your Study Abroad Year studying in the United States, at the University of North Carolina, Wilmington.

You can study American Studies as part of a combined undergraduate degree with History, English Literature or Politics & International Relations.

The interdisciplinary approach made me consider a wider range of ideas within my historical studies. It is a broad and fulfilling pathway.
