Undergraduate Studies in AMCS

American Culture Studies is a multidisciplinary program that provides both a broader context for study in different fields and a deeper understanding of American culture in all of its complexities.

AMCS students explore culture-related topics and issues that demand multiple perspectives and methodologies. They also consider the mutual relevance of various disciplines to any single object of study in American culture - a place, an event, a work of art, a political institution, and so on - while developing the knowledge and skills necessary to study a wide array of cultural objects.
