Program Overview

What DePaul University says about their program:
"​American Studies examines the breadth and diversity of the American experience. It is an interdisciplinary field that integrates the study of literature, history, geography, media, politics, popular culture, art and religion in order to critically analyze American society, culture, institutions, and intellectual traditions. You will be encouraged to question what constitutes American culture, and how cultural expressions reflect and reveal American values, beliefs, prejudices, pleasures and perceptions."
