American Culture from pre-European Contact through the Civil War period. Team-taught six credit, interdisciplinary course that begins a sequence with AMS 1B.

American Studies 1A/1B is a two semester package. When a student completes these twelve units, the following requirements have been met:

• Core GE: Area C1 Arts, Area C2 Letters, Third Area C course, Area D2 Comparative Systems, Area D3 Social Issues.  When these areas are satisfied by individual course at SJSU, 15 units are earned.  Since these areas are covered in this two-course sequence with 12 units, an additional 3-unit GE course of a student's choosing needs to be taken to complete the required 39 units of GE in the lower division.

• American Institutions: U.S. History, U.S. Constitution, California Government graduation requirements are all also covered by completing this course sequence.
