The American Studies Program is an interdisciplinary honors major that is comparative and internationally oriented. The Program examines the development and expressions of national culture alongside those of borderland and diasporic American cultures, and amongst global cultures.The major draws on a broad range of faculty from the humanities and social sciences so that students can examine components of U.S. culture, the diverse experiences of Americans, and others affected by Americans locally, nationally, and globally.
