Program description

A big part of your life has been invented and made in America. Think about the fastfood that you eat, the music you are listening to or the movies you are watching, computer programmes that you use.

The University of Groningen is the only university in The Netherlands to offer a Bachelor degree in American Studies. All courses are designed and developed specifically for American Studies. This has resulted in a program that is transparent, coherent and exciting. It was categorized as “Excellent” in the recent national quality assurance exercise. What distinguishes our degree from all other similar programs is its interdisciplinary nature: rather than approaching the field from one or two perspectives, traditionally history and literature, in Groningen students will explore “America” from the perspectives of its popular culture, history, language, literature, constitution, ethnicity and religion, drawing on and interrelating a range of disciplinary models. In addition to acquiring knowledge about the specific field of study, students acquire a range of transferable skills that will stand them in good stead whatever direction their lives take them after university. Students will develop competence in analysis and argument; presentation and communication skills, and high levels of spoken and written English.
