Learn a second language while studying the world’s only superpower on this fascinating course, which includes a full year abroad at one of 40-plus US university campuses – the widest choice available to UK students. Many 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.
This programme also enables you to use the state-of-the-art facilities and expert staff of our Language Learning Centre to learn a modern language. The US is now the world’s second largest Spanish-speaking community but there are also large communities speaking Chinese, Italian, French or German in many cities and states, making language skills especially relevant to the study of this melting pot of different peoples and cultures. 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 programme directly, we offer a foundation year to prepare you for degree-level study.
