    Has anyone done it? I'm really interested to hear peoples opinions.

    I will be studying psychology bsc with American studies minor, and I will be spending my third year in an American university.

    I was also wondering if this extra year in America is advantageous?

    hiya i was looking in to switching my offer of straight bsc psychology at sussex to the psychology with american studies as a minor option. i can't find much about the course structure.. the website is confusing + doesn't list what we'd actually be studying for the american studies part. i've also heard that the second year is completely american studies + the third year (america year) is doing the 2nd year of psychology, if that makes sense.

    so yeah, i know i've kinda asked you a question instead of answering the question but could you tell me a bit about it? it sounds so good, employers can't fault a year in america + it's a once in a lifetime opportunity

    the law with american studies programme sounds really appealing - at the open day, they basically said that the third year is pure literature. but then when we asked if there's any link with law, they said we'll study "some law". so i'm not sure what actually goes on, but a year living and learning in the US would look great on any CV I'd say.

    Its not, I knew a few people in second year doing Psychology+American studies

    OP, I didn't do it myself but I wish I'd done a term/year abroad - I'm sure it will be amazing and I certainly don't think it will be a disadvantage!
