The Department encourages students to pursue a minor in our unit. To complete a minor in American Studies, students must complete at least fifteen credits in 3xxx or above courses. Only courses listed with Department of American Studies designators may count toward the minor. In other words, courses in History, English, or any other department will not be counted toward the minor. Approved courses must also be completed with a C grade or higher to qualify. Please fill out an “Intent to Minor Form” to declare your minor.
