Welcome to The Department of American and Canadian Studies
The Department of American & Canadian Studies has a thriving undergraduate and postgraduate programme, and a teaching and research culture of the highest quality. American and Canadian Studies is an interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary degree subject focusing on the study of the history, literature, politics and culture of the United States and Canada. In line with the most recent research in this subject area, our teaching and research is also informed by a global perspective and the exchange of influence between North American cultures and those of Britain, the rest of Europe and the rest of the Americas.
The Department is a friendly place to study, where, as part of a vibrant academic community, you can expect ready access to staff, and plenty of opportunities to meet other students from both the UK and overseas. We are committed both to our undergraduate and postgraduate community. Both are thriving and our postgraduate programme is one of the largest and best-supported in the country.
