American Studies


Course Description

The American Studies MA attracts high calibre students from a variety of academic backgrounds, though commonly the study of literature or history has formed a substantial component of their undergraduate degree. Although many students have previously specialised in some aspect of American Studies, this is not a prerequisite for the course.

Course Structure

Core modules may include:
• Approaches to American Studies
• Researching Contemporary America
• Research Management and Personal Development Skills

Optional modules may include:
• American Labour History
• Darwinism and Creationism in America
• Fictions of America
• In the Midst of War: The United States and South East Asia, 1940 - 1968
• Policing the City and the Frontier
• Recent Queer Writing
• Representing the South: Literature, Film and History

Assessment

The core modules are assessed by written work of 4,000 words and through exercises in research and presentation skills. Optional modules may be assessed in a variety of ways, including essays and examinations. You will submit a dissertation of 15,000 - 20,000 words by the end of the summer period.
