MASTER'S DEGREE IN AMERICAN STUDIES

General

Program Description

SHORT DESCRIPTION

The American Studies Program at the University of Bucharest already has a long tradition within the Faculty of Foreign Languages and Literatures and was the first such academic venture in Romania. Supported by both the Cultural Center of the US Embassy and the Fulbright Commission in Romania, our program has benefited from the experience of some of the top specialists in the field of American Studies.

Since this is an interdisciplinary (cultural studies) program, it follows that you will be studying a lot of exciting interrelated disciplines, such as (to name but a few subjects) American film studies, American literature, American civilization, media studies, studies of race and ethnicity, visual culture, popular culture, American history and politics, Native-American studies, African-American studies and a lot of other very exciting things!

Through the complementary disciplines you will also have access to a second language and literature to choose from a rich range of possibilities (French, German, Italian, Swedish, Portuguese, Spanish, Korean, Russian, Latin and Romanian). Both languages will appear in the transcript of grades.
