The material covered on this course ranges from history, literature and politics, to visual arts and popular culture; you will study core modules in your first year to give you a basis from which to tailor your studies to your areas of interest as the course progresses. You will have access to world-class levels of research and teaching, and Nottingham is one of few UK universities to offer a named minor option in Canadian studies alongside American studies. At the end of your first year, you will have the option to transfer onto a four-year variation of this course, which includes a year spent studying at an American or Canadian institution. This provides a fantastic opportunity to deepen your understanding of the region, gain cultural awareness and enhance your employment prospects.
In your first year you are introduced to the basic themes and events of American history and the key authors and texts of American literature, as well as Canadian literature, film and culture. In your second year, in sddition to core modules in American thought and culture, you can choose from a range of specialised modules that will allow you to study certain periods, events, authors or texts in more depth. Your third year can be spent abroad if you choose the four-year course option. In your final year, you will continue to enjoy a range of optional modules such as Prohibition America, or Popular Music and Counterculture, and complete a dissertation project on a topic of your choice.
