Courses that Count Toward American Studies

Approved List for Fall 2015

*Notes:

  1. Some courses may have prerequisites.
  2. You may discover other courses you think might contribute to an American Studies major. If so, talk to the instructor about course content and then check with the Director of American Studies to see if the course could be approved for your major.
  3. If a course is listed as requiring permission of the instructor, you need to let that professor know you are taking the course for American Studies credit. In response the professor may require you to focus portions of your class work, such as papers or presentations, on the United States.
