American Studies Internships

American Studies provides students the opportunity to enjoy coursework and experience a variety of internships to further their understanding of the American experience past, present, and future. American Studies students acquire a command of the history, literature, and political institutions of the United States and can choose an internship to advance their journey among the allied fields of art, music, philosophy, religion, sociology, and economics. The aim of the program is for the student to be able to synthesize the American experience through multiple methods of inquiry and develop a career to leverage their American Studies coursework.
