The American Studies program at UTSA combines the study of history, the arts, literature,
and social sciences to understand the diverse perspectives on cultural traditions
and material practices shaping regional, ethnic, class, gender and political
diversity in the United States.
Students of American Studies conduct interdisciplinary studies of topics such as race and ethnicity, gender and sexuality, transnationalism and border studies, the urban experience, social justice, cultural studies and religion. This program provides excellent preparation for careers in many fields, including law, journalism, government, foreign service, social work, international business, education, non-profit and public administration.
AMS is a growing program, committed to providing a dynamic and interactive teaching and learning environment.
