  • American Studies

    How did Donald Trump become president? Is “America First” a betrayal of values, or a return to origins? Why are “This is America” memes so controversial? How did gun ownership become a central question of American politics? How did the U.S. dollar become the currency of global trade?

    In American Studies, you’ll learn in depth about the popular culture, politics, history, literature, economics, race relations, and religions of the United States. And you’ll study the connections between the Americas and the wider world. American Studies is not only “American”—its international scope and inter-American perspective prepare you to lead in the global future.

    Our entire program is taught in English by top-notch international faculty who will help you get acquainted with a range of academic disciplines. With America as your case study, you’ll develop essential skills in writing, speaking, and research-skills that you can apply far beyond the analysis of U.S. culture and politics.

    The United States was once considered “the land of the future” --today, it’s the oldest continuously- existing democracy. An American Studies degree will help you understand the high stakes of the debates that animate global political and social movements today, so you can be an informed citizen of your country and the world.
