American Studies at Providence College

Why Study American Studies at Providence College? 
Our American Studies Program allows you to learn about and examine the American experience through many lenses — art, literature, history, culture, politics, and social movements. It is a highly flexible program, making it an ideal program for students interested in multiple aspects of the humanities such as English, history, black studies, political science, sociology, public and community service, business, and many other disciplines. 

Students majoring in American Studies have the ability to customize a program of study that’s unique to their own interests and goals. Students may choose to follow the academic path that we set for them or create their own by focusing on a single discipline or forming a new concentration.
