B.A. in American Studies

The American Studies Program at LIU Post invites students to examine the social, cultural, and artistic institutions of American life. Through an interdisciplinary curriculum, students develop a greater understanding about America and its relationship to the world. 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. Working with an advisor, you will build a curriculum from diverse subjects that include history, English, sociology, political science, philosophy, art history, psychology, anthropology, theater, music, education, and earth and environmental sciences.
