This course involves specialist study of the USA – its government, politics, history and culture – anchored in the grand sweep of political ideas, history, institutions and issues the world over.
It is taught jointly by the School of Politics and International Relations and the Department of American and Canadian Studies.
You will study a range of core modules in American history and literature, as well as the government and politics of the USA. You can also choose optional modules in both subjects and from a wide range offered across the University.
There is an opportunity to transfer to a four-year course, spending your third year studying abroad in the USA, depending on satisfactory performance and subject to availability.
