Our students gain a variety of skills from working across disciplines and studying abroad. American and Canadian studies graduates adapt easily to such professions as management, business, public services, teaching, law, media, postgraduate work and academia. The modules on contemporary culture are very useful to those students who enter media-related work, such as advertising, journalism, radio and television. A number of our graduates go to North America for careers or further study.
