Have you ever wondered ... Where the "Me Too" Movement really began? Why so many people went to see Black Panther? The true impact of hip hop in America? How transgender rights will be affected by the current political climate? How to have a successful protest?
Cultural Studies peers beneath the surface of the pop culture you consume, the music you listen to, the clothes you buy, the foods you eat, the places you visit, the speeches you hear, the things you read, and the art you see. We invite you to examine impact of identity on American culture. Through lenses of race, gender, sexuality, ethnicity, region, class, immigration, nationality, age, dis/ability, and religion, we study the ways that positionality affect the lived experiences of people. You will have the opportunity to craft your own interdisciplinary program of study that concentrates on aspects of American culture and society that will best prepare you for life after college.
