American Studies

Where traditional academic departments represent specialized disciplines (think Biology, Psychology, or Math, for example), the American Studies Program represents all departments/disciplines at Saint Michael's that are most relevant to learning about America’s history and culture: History, English, Religious Studies, Political Science, Fine Arts, Sociology/Anthropology, and Media Studies, Journalism and Digital Arts.

The American Studies major, then, lets students experience a wide range of academic topics and fields and how they intersect in and inform the broad picture of America.
