We live in an Americanised world. This fascinating course enables you to study the world’s only superpower and spend a full year abroad at one of 40-plus US university campuses – the widest choice available to UK students. Most universities offer just one semester in the US but our students go for a year to fully immerse themselves in American culture. Hull has been pioneering the teaching of American Studies in the UK for more than 50 years, and our diverse range of modules allow you to tailor the degree to suit your own interests and career aspirations.
Our friendly, approachable academics are international experts in the field of American Studies. You can specialise in history, literature or culture, if you choose, but are encouraged to embrace the rich diversity of American studies. Our graduates are in high demand from employers who value their skills, confidence and flexibility. If you don't have the qualifications to enter the degree directly, we offer a foundation year to prepare you for degree-level study.
