Minor in American Studies
To earn a minor in American Studies, students must complete at least 28 units of course work in the program. Because students may not count courses for both a major and a minor, the specific courses that are used for an American Studies minor depend on the courses that are used to satisfy the major requirement.
A student must take the following:
1. The gateway seminar, AMSTUD 160. Perspectives on American Identity
2. at least 2 courses from category 2 (History and Institutions)
3. at least 2 courses from category 3 (Literature, Culture and the Arts)
4. at least 1 course from category 4 (Comparative Race and Ethnicity)
Courses used to satisfy these requirements must be taken for a letter grade.
