The focus area for the American studies major or minor is a unique feature of the program. Each student creates a concentration area centered on topic that interests him or her -- for example, political conflict in the U.S., gender and popular culture and religion and American activism. The focus area allows students to think creatively about their education and make connections between areas of study.

The program also supports Stetson American Studies International, an exchange program for international students of American studies, and the Student Research in Science and Religion program, which allows students to research topics related to the cultural impact of science and religion. Through American studies, students also pursue experiential learning projects, teaching internships and internships at public history sites.
