Breadth Requirements

The major in American Culture (AC) requires students to take courses across four different areas. Among electives within AC concentration, at least one course at the 200-level or above must fall into each of the following areas (one course may count toward more than one area; required courses cannot fulfill breadth requirements):

  • Pre-20th Century United States
  • Transnationalism, Diaspora, and/or Empire
  • Women, Gender, and/or Sexuality
  • Ethnic and/or Indigenous Studies

When necessary, an appropriate course listed in another department may be used to satisfy the breadth requirements with permission of the AC undergraduate advisor.
