Study type Taught


Our MA in American Studies is an interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary course, which enables you to focus on the study of:

  • history, literature, politics, film and culture of the United States

  • literature, culture and society of Canada

Some of the core issues you will look at include:

  • to what extent will the US be forced to renegotiate political, financial and cultural relationships long characterised by dominance?

  • how do we make sense of the Trump era?

  • how should the Obama Presidency be understood within the history of race relations and the struggle for civil rights?

  • how will cultural responses to changing political, media, and built environments work within and against established forms and traditions?

You will be involved in intellectual exchange among a group with shared interests, but with a broad range of backgrounds and perspectives.
