In less than 200 years, the United States of America grew from far-flung colony to the world’s greatest superpower. Study with us and find out how.
It doesn’t take today’s political drama to make America’s story fascinating or powerful. With this degree, you can explore the events and forces behind the United States’ rise from humble beginnings to becoming the single most dominant country in the world – with unmatched economic, political and cultural influence.

You’ll explore some themes which are central to modern thinking – including democracy, immigration, race and imperialism. You’ll learn what drove those early settlers across the Atlantic and consider what made them different from the people they left behind in Europe. And you’ll uncover the dark side of the American past, from the treatment of Native Americans, to slavery and the Civil War waged to end it.

By developing an in-depth understanding of American History, you won’t simply discover the story of how it grew in stature and influence. You’ll also gain a perspective into its character and its psyche – uncovering what ‘the American way’ really means.

This course has a Foundation Year available.
