History and American Studies - University of Hertfordshire

Study with a top History department and be taught from the cutting edge of historical research. Explore the making of one of the world’s most influential superpowers in American Studies. Our BA History and/with American Studies gives you the opportunity to study two subjects that will help you to hone your investigative and analytical skills. Through our diverse and inclusive History curriculum you will learn about an array of cultures and identities. What links our work is our focus on people’s history and everyday lives. This is represented strongly in our first year programme, which will give you an insight into the making of the modern world through exploration of faith, magic and medicine, campaigns for freedom and equality, Africa and the world, and America from Hamilton to Trump. In American Studies, you’ll explore in depth a diverse, multicultural country that’s rich in film and literature, and constantly in the spotlight. You’ll deepen your understanding of its culture from critical, theoretical and historical perspectives, exploring the part it plays in the world today. Throughout your degree, the common link between the two disciplines will be the complementary skills of analysis and interpretation. As historians you will learn to analyse historical documents and debates among historians, while in American Studies you’ll also explore novels, short stories, poetry, films and television shows, as well as historical events.
