AMS 362 Seminar in American Studies

Topics for this in-depth interdisciplinary seminar change by semester. Majors are strongly encouraged to take more than one seminar during their course of study. Multiple AMS 362 topics courses count as electives in the student's course of study to complete the major, and are the best and most intensive method of preparation for the Senior capstone experience, AMS 363. Recent seminar topics have included "Photography and Memory in American Culture," "The American Indian in American Culture," "Designs for Living: Environmentalism, Counterculture, and Utopias," "The 1920's", "Nature in American Culture." "American Censored," "America, a Hydraulic Society," and "The Beat Generation in American Culture." [SS, W]
