American Studies Program

Student Studying

The United States is a complex, multi-dimensional society. The American Studies program at LIU Post examines, from many perspectives, this diverse and dynamic country.

Through an interdisciplinary curriculum, America is revealed through its art, its economy, its faith traditions, its social institutions and its governance – the forces that have driven the nation’s history and produced its greatness as well as its shortcomings. Each student pursuing a Bachelor of Arts in American Studies will design his or her own plan of study within broad guidelines that accommodate the individual’s interests.

No two American Studies degree programs are alike, but all result in a deeper understanding of our nation and its people.
