The following courses, from fourteen different departments, have American Studies approval to count towards the major, ID major, and minor. Descriptions of the courses can be found in the Academic Register under the respective departments that offer them. Those marked with an asterisk (*) are American Studies approved courses that meet the race and ethnicity or gender requirement. Those marked with a pound sign (#) are American Studies approved courses that meet the pre-1900 requirement. Note that some American Studies approved courses require prerequisites, which can be found under the department course descriptions. New courses not listed may be granted American Studies approval as determined by the Program Director. All courses counted towards the major or minor must have American Studies course approval.
Course Selection Guidelines: A student must meet with his or her American Studies academic advisor prior to registration. It should be noted that some courses, notably in English and Economics, require prerequisites, so a student needs to make plans early in his or her studies to complete these planning to take an upper-level course in these departments. A student must consult with the American Studies Program Director and the Registrar for approval of AP or IB credits for the major.
