American Studies minors must meet and maintain a 2.5 GPA admissions and graduation standard.

Students are required to complete the following:

A. Required Core Course (3 credits)


B. Disciplinary Area Exploration Courses (9 credits)


Students must take one course from three of the following disciplinary areas (3 courses total): 1) American History and Government, 2) American Literature and Folklore, 3) American Social Sciences, 4) American Environmental Studies, and 5) American Art, Media, and Communication Studies. Courses fulfilling the requirement in each discipline are listed below.

American History and Government:


Note:


*Topics must be American; requires approval from advisor

Note:


* Course requires instructor permission

C. Upper Division Focus Requirements (6 credits)


Students must choose two additional courses from any of the disciplinary areas listed above, with strong encouragement to focus these courses in a single disciplinary area. Any of the courses listed above can satisfy this requirement, as long as they are at the 3000 level or higher.

At this level, American Studies students also have the option of choosing from the following additional courses if they would like to pursue a focus in writing.

NOTE:


Courses cannot be double-counted. For instance, a student may use ENGL/HIST 3700 (Regional Folklore) to count for their "American Literature and Folklore" category requirement, but they cannot also use it to count towards their requirement for two upper-division courses.
