American Studies Concentration

In the American Studies concentration, you’ll explore the cultural, historical, and political life of the United States and its place in the world.

In addition to the breadth that it adds to a business education, a concentration in American Studies prepares you for a variety of careers, such as law, public relations, government and public policy, nonprofit administration, journalism, teaching, and school administration. It also provides a great foundation for graduate study in business, law, political science, public policy, history and many other fields in the arts and sciences.
