American Studies

The American studies courses are designed to examine the histories and cultures existing within the United States and/or Latin America.

Courses may address the historical and cultural emergence of specific groups such as African-American, Asian-American, Latino-American, Native-American, or Arab-American.

Strong emphasis will be placed on literature, film, music, history and philosophy, especially the way in which these cultural forms challenge, contest, and subvert the dominant hegemonic ideology.
