Masters programme overview

American studies deal with the American society, country, and culture in an interdisciplinary manner. This Masters programme includes the study of American literature through the ages, American cultural heritage and developments as well as contemporary topics such as immigration, day-to-day politics and influence on the Americas.

Depending on the university you may opt for, the angle taken within your study programme may be wider or narrower. Hence, you may include Canadian literature and the Americas as a basis for comparison at some institutions, while at others you may focus closely on the United States of America and its contemporary subject areas of public discussion.
