Career Potential

With a Bachelor of Arts Degree in American Studies, students can enter graduate programs in the field or in a variety of related disciplines. Those who intend to enter such fields as law, business, communications, government, and education will find that the skills developed and the body of knowledge mastered in an American Studies Program make them attractive job candidates.

Students majoring in Elementary Education must take a liberal arts major and therefore might consider the advantages of interdisciplinary American Studies.

Students who take a minor in American Studies will find that the demonstrated ability to develop knowledge and comprehension beyond one narrow field of study will prove attractive to professional schools and employers.
