The American Studies Program brings together scholars pursuing the interdisciplinary study of American culture. Participating faculty come from several departments, including English, History, Art History, Psychology, and Communication. In addition to offering an interdisciplinary undergraduate minor in American Studies (and sponsoring undergraduates who wish to create their own independent major in American Studies), the program hosts speakers and faculty seminars, and works with related departments and programs to build a community of interdisciplinary scholars—faculty, graduate students, and undergraduates—at Boston College.
