American philosophy and African-American literature. Modern American fiction and music in the United States. Catholic imagination and classical America. In this program, American Studies of Providence College means understanding the American experience through many lenses — art, literature, history, culture, politics, and social movements. 


The American Studies program at Providence College is interdisciplinary and diverse. It’s also intentionally flexible — making it a great complement to students interested in English, history, Black studies, political science, sociology, public and community service, business, and many other disciplines.

With us, you can follow the academic path that we set for you or create your own — by focusing on a single discipline or forming a new concentration. In our program, you literally control what you want to study. You can base your decisions on your future plans or plan according to your personal interests. Even better yet, you can do both.
