A Bachelor of Arts in American Civilization gives context to United States’ history, from its very beginnings all the way to today’s important current events. This degree is a specialization of history focusing on the classical context and current environment that make up the United States.
The American civilization curriculum includes a thorough analysis of Greek and Roman governmental structures, classical literature, and influential laws that impacted the foundation of the United States. Students will also have the ability to research and present in three seminar-style classes with fellow students, under the mentorship of professors. This degree is particularly useful to students anticipating a future in teaching American history, working in government, or pursuing a law degree.
