School of Interdisciplinary Studies American Studies

AMST 30100, "Perspectives on America," builds on expertise gained in AMST 20100 and encourages students to practice American Studies scholarship and writing at a more advanced level.

AMST 30100's readings and research concentrate on topics representative of both faculty expertise and emergent directions in American Studies scholarship. While the content of the course will vary according to these criteria, each section of AMST 30100 will share the desire to view America from multiple points of inquiry rather than from the perspective of a single discipline.

By drawing on a broad range of knowledge from the humanities and social sciences, the course provides students with a wide-ranging, yet disciplined exploration of problems that cross the boundaries of traditional academic fields and reflect the diversity of the American experience.
