American Studies Department
The faculty of the American Studies Department offer instruction leading to two separate degrees: a B.A. in American Studies or a B.A. in Media & Communications.
The American Studies major applies a cross-disciplinary perspective to the study of the United States. The broadly based major focuses on the nation's social and cultural history; its people and their actions; and the changing character of its cultural, social, political, legal, and economic structures. The Media and Communications major prepares students for careers in print or electronic journalism and other related media industries and activities, such as video editing, online design, public relations and promotions. Additionally, the majors provides students with a broad-based education emphasizing theoretical, historical and experiential learning in an interdisciplinary context.
