Course summary

The course offers the flexibility to explore. Whether you've come to the subject through an interest in global relations, politics, or even a love for American television shows, our expert-led courses let you design your degree to suit your strengths and interests. You will explore American and Canadian history, literature and culture, selecting optional modules on everything from North American politics, music, art, film and television. The range of areas on offer means you will develop important skills to enhance your career options, from critical thinking and analysis, to creativity and communication. You can also experience North America, by choosing to study abroad for a year at a US or Canadian university. You can do this by transferring to the study abroad programme at the end of your first year. The option to study abroad is dependent on your academic performance and the availability of places.
