The School of American Studies is recognised as one of the best American Studies departments in the UK. As a vibrant and dynamic school, we are joint second for overall satisfaction and teaching in our subject area out of all English mainstream universities, with a satisfaction score of 97 per cent in both categories (2013 National Student Survey). We are also top 5 in the UK according to the 2014 Guardian University Guide league table and third in The Times Good University Guide for American Studies.
Our staff are at the forefront of new developments within the discipline and our teaching is research-led, which is why we are so highly regarded for our teaching. We have a wide range of modules on offer and the majority of our undergraduate courses require you to spend time studying abroad.
