    Hey guys,

    I am asking the question "Is Comparative American Studies at Liverpool really that bad?" because although Liverpool seems to be a very great university, its American studies course is the second worst within the UK, according to the Guardian Subject League table.

    (I know the rankings can be wrong, but my experience shows that subject tables are quite relevant to the teaching quality as they consider things such as student satisfaction and class size.)

    So, how is it? Is anyone doing this course or knows anything about it?

    Also, if you had to choose between Liverpool, Leicester, UEA and Birmingham for American studies, what would be your order of preference?

    Thank you for your insights!

    I love Liverpool University and it is an excellent university, but that doesn't mean it is the best for every subject. Although overall it is a great place to study that department may not be as good as say the Mathematics department or Archaeology etc. I would go with your gut and if there are other universities where that course ranks higher they are probably a better bet

    Thanks for the response. I know Liverpool is excellent - that is why I'm puzzled why American Studies is ranked so poorly - and that is why it'd be great to hear also from someone doing that course If someone confirmed that it is bad, I would feel better to believe the ranking
