Why Study American Studies

Swansea University is the leading centre in Wales for the study of the United States. We offer four year degrees (third year abroad) or three year degrees (optional semester abroad). Our students enjoy a warm and friendly atmosphere and all have a personal tutor. You can study American history, politics, literature, culture, and  film. Visiting Faculty from the US contribute to delivering an exciting teaching programme which is intellectually stimulating and demanding.  The American Studies student society regularly organises academic and social events.
