Minor Concentration Requirements

The purpose of this program is to offer undergraduates an opportunity to develop their interest in American culture and society through a structured, interdisciplinary approach. The minor concentration consists of six courses, which include CAS AM 200 and an AM course at the 200-level or above, and the satisfactory completion of a one-semester senior project. Students choose the remaining three courses from American Studies or from one or more of the following affiliated departments or programs: African American Studies, Anthropology, Archaeology, Art History, Economics, English, Geography, History, Philosophy, Political Science, Religion, Sociology, and Women’s Studies. These courses must deal with some aspect of the American society and must be chosen with the advice of an affiliated faculty member in the respective department. Students must earn a minimum grade of C in all courses taken toward the minor concentration.
