Bachelor of Arts in American Studies Creighton University

USA

Course info

Summary

What does it mean to be American? Where does America begin and end? How has diversity shaped American culture? If you’ve always been curious about the answers to these questions, then getting a Bachelor of Arts (BA) in American studies from Creighton University might be the perfect option for you.

When you pursue a BA in American studies, you’ll gain the knowledge and skills it takes to bring critical insights to the study of the American experience in all its diversity—past and present. Creighton’s faculty members aim to stimulate critical and creative thinking through interdisciplinary and comparative study with attention to transnational issues and current theoretical frameworks.

As an American studies major, you’ll immerse yourself in all aspects of America, including: literature and film, politics and social movements, history and popular culture, race and ethnicity, sports, philosophy and religion. The list goes on and on, and features even more specific topics like jazz, hip-hop and performance art, baseball and boxing, the American Revolution, Apocalypse Now, museums and mega churches, and Moby Dick.

Outcomes

Studies conducted by the American Studies Association indicate that the greatest value of the American studies major is diverse thinking. In no other curriculum is the student offered such a wide exposure to thinking and scholarship in so many areas: political, intellectual, social and economic history, literature, religion, music, art, folklore, and material culture are all studies in American studies programs.
