Explore the past, present, and potential future of America in this distinctive degree which draws on expertise from across the University of Lincoln in American history, literature, film, music, theatre, visual arts, foreign policy, and politics.

Students have the opportunity to study topics spanning the cities of the colonial Americas, the American Revolution, the history of the Broadway musical, Hollywood cinema, the battle for civil rights, the Vietnam War, and Chinese-American relations.

This course focuses on the critical examination and interpretation of primary source materials, including novels, films, newspapers, songs, oral histories, protest movements, and political documents.

Students may have the opportunity to deepen their knowledge and broaden their horizons by taking part in a period of study abroad at a partner institution in North America during their third year. Doing so can help develop a greater cultural awareness and resourcefulness. For students who take the optional Spanish language modules as part of their first and second-year studies, the year abroad also provides opportunities for examining Hispanic arts, histories, and cultures.
