Center for American and World Cultures

Welcome to Miami University’s Center for American and World Cultures where we believe knowledge helps build an inclusive and just world.


We serve as an interdisciplinary focal point for the study of race, class, gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, nationality, religious difference, and abilities both here and abroad, today, and in the past. Our courses, which range from classes that delve into the meanings of prejudice and discrimination to a class that prepares you for your international study abroad experiences, and our rich selection of programming, provide many opportunities to explore and experience the world and prepare you for the challenges that await you. Please consider this website your portal to the world beyond Oxford, Ohio, while you are at Miami University, and join us on the exhilarating journey as we explore people, places, and personal and global issues.
