MA in American studies

What does it mean to be an American? Is there a shared American culture, or is that just something Europeans imagine?

Because of the global reach of the United States, most Europeans have the impression that they "know" America, which is often perceived as a single culture, with little recognition of the complexity and variety that are characteristic of the nation.

American Studies is a two year MA program that focuses on the world's leading superpower. It looks at culture, politics, economics, literature, and society in a country of more than 300 million inhabitants in fifty distinct states.

During the two-year American Studies program you may, among other things, take courses in societal studies and history, immigration and economics, media studies, music, literature, and film.

You will have between 8 and 12 hours of teaching per week, in the form of both lectures and discussions. There will also be some presentations from you and other students, as well as occasional group work.

Your teaching will be about US society, history, economics and immigration, as well as analysis of the American media, literature and film.

During the first semester you will receive an introduction to American history, culture and society, as well as a seminar on theory and method.

Freedom to choose

During the second and third semesters, you will be able to choose elective courses that deal with a range of topics that reflect the faculty's research interests. The majority of these courses are in participating departments, including history, political science, English, media studies, relgion, journalism and marketing. During the third semester you also have the option of studying abroad at a European or an American university.

Graduates who have completed this master programme are entitled to use the title of MA (master og arts) in American studies.
