Fall 2013 – Summer 2014
North American Studies provides a comprehensive view of civilization on this continent, with a special emphasis on the United States. The peoples of the continent are examined in the first instance from the perspective of economics, political science, literature, and history. Subsequent courses are available from several other disciplines as well. Foundation and capstone seminars constitute a vital part of the program. The goal is to attain mastery over diverse material and to develop an integrated knowledge of society on this continent.
Independent study, internships, and university exchange arrangements are available within the context of the program.
Graduates of the program are well prepared for several types of professional options, including those that require advanced degrees.
