The United States Studies Centre teaches some of the most innovative and interesting undergraduate units in Australia. These unique units cover a wide range of subject areas, from US politics to American comedy, and anti-Americanism to contemporary music. They are available to all University of Sydney undergraduate students as an elective or can be completed as part of the American Studies major.
Some units can also be completed as part of a major in Government and International Relations, Gender and Cultural Studies, International Business, Music, English, or History. Students may also choose to apply for cross-institutional or non-award study.
American Studies is an interdisciplinary major incorporating units of study from the US Studies Centre and from the departments of Art History and Film Studies, English, Government and International Relations, History, and Music.
