Discover American Studies
The American studies program will expose you to political, intellectual, religious, historical, social, economic, and folklore scholarship. Students benefit from course work specifically designed to build the kind of marketable skills that graduate schools and employers are looking for.
Students in the American studies program at Presentation College regularly travel throughout the region and country to attend professional and academic conferences.
Students find opportunities to work closely with faculty on meaningful research projects, and many students present their findings at conferences. And you’ll be guided by nationally respected faculty, including one of the country’s leading experts on Native American and upper plains history.
Few areas of study deliver as diverse a range of professional opportunities as American studies. Many students move on to graduate school after they earn their degree, because a degree in American studies can lead to careers in law, history, geography, anthropology, public history, education, social work, and broadcasting.
