American Studies has opened the doorway for the enriching academic experiences I have had here at Miami. I took my first American Studies class with Dr. Sande Garner as a portion of my honors requirements during my first semester at Miami. After that class, I knew that the analytical inquiry American Studies could provide me with was exactly what I wanted for my college career.
The American Studies program (AMS) is an interdisciplinary program in the Department of Global and Intercultural Studies in the College of Arts and Science. Students can earn a Bachelor's degree (major) and a minor in this field of study. We offer students a rich, interdisciplinary curriculum coupled with many opportunities for independent research, study away, and internships.
