Essex’s five-year BA American Studies (United States) (including foundation year and year abroad), will be suitable for students whose academic qualifications do not yet meet Essex’s entrance requirements for the four-year version of this course. This course is intended for those who are interested in learning all things American. Students will learn about the diverse and paradoxical aspects of the US through interdisciplinary studies. The US – perhaps more than any other society – lends itself to interdisciplinary study; its literature and film are connected to its politics, its cultures are linked to its histories. Crucially, students also spend either a term or a full academic year studying in the United States, so students can explore and become immersed in American culture. Courses offered ranging from across the humanities and social sciences including: Contemporary social issues, such as the struggles for racial justice; The legacies of slavery and the civil rights movement; Environmental protection of the ‘wilderness’ of the Far West; Native American histories and rights.
