A degree in American and Canadian Studies has never been more relevant. 

From political protest, multiculturalism and global relations, to debating the removal of statues and monuments, these are all issues which make up our modern world. 

Whether you’ve come to American and Canadian studies through an interest in current events - perhaps the 2020 US election, or the Black Lives Matter movement - or because you’ve always been fascinated by North American culture, our courses offer the flexibility to explore.
