We are well aware of our Saints need for a flexible and customizable education. We have created a program that does just that. Our American Studies program is diverse; it allows you to pursue a variety of disciplines under one major. The program combines well with Siena’s Pre-Law program and Certificate in Revolutionary Era Studies, as well as semester programs at Gettysburg College and William and Mary College. Our students have the opportunity to enjoy study abroad opportunities, internships, and second majors.

Our students explore topics such as:

  • American history
  • American literature
  • Social sciences
  • American culture

Our graduates have gone on to top graduate schools and have found careers in law, politics, business, public relations, publishing, broadcasting, and public history, to name just a few.
