Are you interested in the contemporary manifestations and future possibilities of the popular and fine arts, social and cultural institutions, and material artifacts of a diverse and changing American nation? American Studies is an interdisciplinary Program that offers courses from a variety of disciplines, including English, History, Political Science, Anthropology, Sociology, Music, Art and others from throughout the City College community.
American Studies majors develop a deep appreciation of the various cultures that make up America's vast panorama of races, ethnicities, and regionalisms and an understanding of its internal variations as well as the exceptional character of the American nation. They learn to combine historical, sociological, and literary insights with a variety of multimedia approaches such as photography and film.
At present, this program is not accepting new majors.
