It interrogates, challenges and moves beyond the Exceptionalist rhetoric and nation-states ideology of traditional American Studies to consider the USA, and its neighbours, in an insightful, challenging and relevant way.

You develop specialist knowledge and research skills in a range of disciplines by navigating complex historical, cultural, geo-political and environmental issues. A sophisticated awareness of the reach (and the limitations) of US hegemony, as well as issues of cultural collision, media penetration, region and identity, give our graduates an intellectual grounding well-suited to many careers, in addition to a solid foundation for graduate work at MPhil or PhD level.

Aims

This programme aims to:

  • provide you with a thorough grounding in the techniques and approaches necessary for advanced research in American Studies.
  • promote interdisciplinarity as a conceptual mode of theory and analysis
  • encourage critical reflection and engagement with public debates relating to aspects of American society.
  • consolidate the strengths of our long-running undergraduate programmes whilst interrogating, challenging, and moving outside the exceptionalist rhetoric and nation-state ideology of conventional American Studies
Cost of the master: Not declared
