American Studies Minor

This minor promotes an interdisciplinary understanding of the complex economic, political, and cultural structures of the United States and its place in the world.

Students must complete fifteen credits, including:

  • Six credits of courses with an AMST designation at the 2000 level or above.
  • Nine credits taken from any of the courses listed under “course requirements” in the American Studies major or courses approved by the director of American Studies.
