Course summary

If you enjoy history, politics, international relations, literature, and film, and are looking to gain a wide set of skills, I would highly recommend this course.

Overview

America is distinct among modern countries because of the stories it tells about itself; as the land of the free, and as a site of endless possibilities.

A degree in American Studies asks you to uncover the stories that are not being told and to interrogate the world’s superpower using a variety of disciplinary approaches.

Our academics are leading researchers in American Cinema, History, Literature, and Politics and we bring our expert knowledge to bear in challenging and rewarding classes.

Why study American Studies?

American Studies is a fascinating subject because the United States is one of the most diverse places in the world, with a rich history, a vibrant political culture, world changing literature and film, and global influence. In this programme - which encompasses BA American Studies Single Honours and BA American Studies Combined Honours - you will learn about the history, culture, and politics of the United States.

The degree is both multidisciplinary (drawing on more than one academic discipline to understand the US) and interdisciplinary (using these various disciplines together to enhance this understanding). The disciplines you will encounter are history (social, cultural, racial, and foreign policy), literature and cultural studies (including art history, cinema, and media studies), and politics. You will also take modules that are specifically designed to draw on all of these strands. This broad ranging degree is taught by a team of highly-qualified academics, working on the main campus at the heart of the historic city of Canterbury, where we provide high-quality teaching within a friendly and supportive learning environment.

American Studies students also have several opportunities to study in North America, which enables them to develop confidence, independence, and employability skills.You will have the opportunity to take part in an annual field trip to a major US city such as New York, or to apply to spend a semester or full year studying at a university in North America.
