The Minor in American Studies

A flexible program across several departments that encourages students to rediscover America on their own terms

The American Studies Program at Old Dominion University is a multidisciplinary program housed in the College of Arts and Letters offering students the opportunity to craft their own course of study in seeking answers to several critical questions:

  • What is America?
  • Is there still an American Dream?
  • How do American history and culture interact?
