American Studies allows you to understand the United States from a literary and historical perspective. On this MA in American Studies (Part Time) at the University of East Anglia , you’ll study landmark historical events and cultural productions from novels and films to comic books, photographs and paintings according to your chosen options. In doing so, you’ll gain an in-depth critical insight into the key moments and debates that have animated the history and culture of the United States.
You’ll discover the events and forces that shaped the United States, deepening your understanding of how this powerful nation moulds and influences the cultural, political and economic lives of its own people and the world.
You’ll explore the subject through a mix of seminar classes and academic tutorials. You’ll engage in debate and creative discussion, while choosing your own specialist pathway through the subject.
If your background is in interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary American studies, we can support you as you continue to specialise in this vibrant field and find exciting new areas to pursue.
If you’re a graduate of literature or history, or another discipline, we’ll not only provide a place to explore the United States in depth, but offer new theoretical and conceptual perspectives that can enliven your existing learning.
