The one-year, interdisciplinary and fully English taught Master program in American Studies offers exciting research seminars chosen from a wide range of theoretical, historical, social-political, and cultural approaches to the Americas.

It starts from the premise that 'America' was shaped as much by its art, folklore, commerce, education, science and religion as by its Constitution, political treaties and wars. None of the academic mono-disciplines (such as History, Literature, and Sociology) provides sufficient tools to give a comprehensive account of the complex dynamics of American culture. This is where American Studies comes in.

The core of this Master's degree is the investigation of nationhood and nationality and the dynamics of cultural change. In this way, the American Studies program at the University of Groningen distinguishes itself from similar programs elsewhere.... [-]

Because of the global reach of the United States, most Europeans have the impression that they "know" America, which is often perceived as a single culture, with little recognition of the complexity and variety that are characteristic of the nation.American Studies is a two year MA program that focuses on the world's leading superpower. It looks at culture, politics, economics, literature, and society in a country of more than 300 million inhabitants in fifty distinct states. American Studies is an interdisciplinary study that draws on several disciplines that must be included in order to ensure that students can understand and analyze American cultural identities and the changing relationship between the United States and the rest of the world.Through its cooperation with several departments at the University of Southern Denmark, American Studies offers you the opportunity to shape your study program by choosing electives in the participating programs, including literature, history, politics, and journalism. In the third semester, you also have the opportunity to go abroad to study in a European or American university through exchange agreements with selected institutions.

The American Studies Master’s Program is designed to emphasize research-oriented perspectives on American language, literature, culture, and their theories. It builds upon the B.A. program in American Studies at Mainz University but also welcomes applications of students from American Studies programs in Germany, Europe, and other parts of the world.

American Studies has seen a number of major changes in theory and practice in the last decade. Its traditional emphasis on the language, literature, and culture of the United States has been expanded both conceptually and methodologically. Reaching beyond the continental geographical focus of the United States, the more recent concept of Transnational American Studies includes new regions of language and literature, branching out into Atlantic, Caribbean, and Pacific Studies. The Mainz M.A. program responds to these new developments and encourages students to explore the transnational dimensions of American Studies. ... [-]
