Description

The Department of American Studies at the University of Notre Dame focuses on one big question: What does it mean to be an American? This is not an easy question to answer and the stakes are high. As a nation of natives and immigrants, the United States has always encompassed diverse racial and ethnic groups. Throughout rapidly changing historical and global contexts, Americans have forged various cultures expressing the diversity of American experience. American Studies examines those cultures, societies, and politics from multiple perspectives. How do we express, institutionalize, celebrate, and contest American identities?

We believe that its students, faculty, and programs meld the best aspects of a residential liberal arts college, a major research university, and a Catholic institution of international standing. The College's 20 departments span three divisions—the arts, the social sciences, and the humanities—all of which contribute to the vibrant life of the College.
