Support American Studies

With its interdisciplinary curriculum focused on individualized student-centered learning, the American Studies Program at Miami University is committed to providing the perspective and intellectual skills necessary to understand, contextualize, and critically engage the opportunities and challenges of our complex, interconnected, global world. By exploring American culture from a range of perspectives and considering America as a nation, a place, and an ideal, students gain an understanding of how they are shaped by American culture as well as how they can shape American culture.

Our motto in American Studies at Miami is "Create Your Own Future." Donations to the AMS program can help to make this goal a reality for our students. Please consider what a valuable resource the American Studies Program is to Miami University and help us continue these efforts with a gift.
