AMST 1900 - Introduction to American Studies II

3 cr. 3 hr. Day course offered every Semester.

The second half of the introduction to the field of American Studies, introduces the history of American Studies scholarship, focusing on both methodological approaches and significant scholarly works. Distinct periods in the development of American Studies, including the myth and symbol school, the rise of ethnic and multicultural studies, and the recent globalization of American Studies are covered. The course goals will be both to introduce students to the wide breadth of methods included in American Studies and to help them identify those areas of greatest individual interest for their subsequent coursework.
