In such modules, ideas and theories about gender, ethnicity and race, and other forms of identity are used to analyse American culture and to debate political issues.Study in the first full academic year introduces you to the core ideas, such as American national character and the opportunities and challenges of modern multicultural America. The growing focus in the second academic year is historical and cultural America, with a shift towards contemporary America in third academic year.
