An American Sudies minor provides an excellent complement to a wide variety of majors. Our students range from future engineers and business people to teachers and artists.

You will take our most popular course, the full year introduction to "American Civilization," and then quickly graduate into small seminars like "American Popular Culture," "The American Dream," and "Nature and World Cultures." If you are a transfer student from another college, there's an alternative option for completing the minor that is just as dynamic, completely based on our upper division coursework.
