Chair's Welcome

Welcome to the Program in American Studies on the New York City campus.

The American Studies major focuses on the interdisciplinary study of American culture. Majors analyze the intellectual, social, and material cultures of the United States, the diverse experiences of Americans, and the relationship between the United States and the rest of the world. Students choose from a wide variety of courses from over twenty traditional majors– from Anthropology to Women’s and Gender Studies. American Studies values creative, analytic thinking that travels beyond established disciplines.
