American Studies (4 Years) - University of Manchester

Our four-year BA American Studies course will give you a grounding in the history, culture and literature of the US, from colonisation through to contemporary times. The course includes a year spent in North America, where you will be able to experience life in the US or Canada for yourself while continuing your studies. At Manchester, we train our students to be attentive to the counter-currents of US history and literature, and our course places a particular emphasis on the themes of race, capitalism, sexuality, the cultures of labour, and political protest. You will master the approaches and tools found in several academic disciplines, including cultural theory, history, visual studies, literature and politics. You will also learn how to analyse and discuss a wide variety of materials. Years 1 and 2 will give you a solid knowledge of America's political, legal, and administrative infrastructure, enabling you to become familiar with concepts such as: - Mass incarceration - Inequality - Racial stratification - Poverty - The logics of policing - The changing nature of work and leisure - Radical organising - Military power - Cultural imperialism - Environmental policies - Urban politics. - Upon returning to Manchester from your year abroad, you will be able to choose from one of the richest selections of American Studies units in the country while completing a substantial piece of independent research. **Aims** We aim to: - Provide a systematic introduction to key aspects of American literature, history, politics and film, exploiting their interdependence and distinctiveness within the discipline of American Studies; - Encourage independent study, the spirit of enquiry and a commitment to scholarly method appropriate to the field of American Studies; - Help you develop powers of critical and analytical thinking, the ability to apply these to primary and secondary texts, and written and oral communication skills; - Give you the opportunity to benefit from a period of study abroad through a compulsory full academic year at a North American partner university.
