Undergraduate study in American and Canadian Studies 

American and Canadian Studies is one of the most respected centres of its kind in the world, consistently rated highly in the UK teaching and research rankings.

Our multidisciplinary approach, along with the possibility of living and studying or working in the US or Canada on some of our programmes, is highly appealing to potential employers.

Our four-year programme allows you to study at a North American university for one year, while some students on our Single Honours four-year programme can secure an internship to gain work experience in North America. Our programmes are flexibly designed to allow you to specialise increasingly as you progress year on year, and feature a final-year dissertation allowing you to carry out in-depth, individually supervised topics of your choice

We are part of the School of English, Drama and American & Canadian Studies, where you will find a wide range of dynamic courses, exciting opportunities, first-class facilities and a commitment to excellence in teaching. The School offers an intellectually challenging and stimulating environment for your undergraduate studies, ensuring that you are a fully supported and active learner. We also work very closely with the Department of History.
