About American Studies

morrissey college of arts and sciences

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 Communications. 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.

The heart of the program is the interdisciplinary minor in American Studies.
