About

American Studies at California State University Long Beach is an interdisciplinary field that examines American history, life and culture. The work of American Studies takes place both on campuses and in communities. American Studies scholars investigate where the ideals of American democracy are at their finest and where they remain incomplete. 

Overview

American Studies at California State University Long Beach is a vital, malleable, and growing academic enterprise, one known for the new questions it has posed, the new perspectives it has brought to the study of the cultures of the United States, and the new information it has introduced into scholarly and public conversations about national identity and experience.
