The wide variety of courses in this Masters program ranges from those on Americas colonial past and early literary culture to those covering contemporary themes in race, class, gender, religious, ethnic, and regional studies. We pride ourselves on offering students an interdisciplinary curriculum which emphasizes student autonomy, and academic collaboration and exchange. The program consists of four core aspects: American Literature and Culture - Interdisciplinary Profile - Research - Practice Within this structure, students are exposed to the fundamental theoretical framework of American Studies while completing collaborative and independent research projects. Each year, our department welcomes a number of esteemed guest professors from international universities. Teaching lectures and seminars, our guests bring new and innovative research and perspectives to students of American Studies. All students of American Studies are encouraged to spend time in an English-speaking country. This is an invaluable opportunity for students to work with experienced professionals in a different academic environment.
