American Studies @NCSSM
Portrait of an American by Mac Barnes (NCSSM, Class of 2022)
THE SHARED HUMANITIES EXPERIENCE FOR ALL STUDENTS AT NCSSM
"American Studies provided an opportunity to engage in discussion and analysis of text that I didn't get in many other classes my junior year. My American Studies class, while covering American history and literature, also held discussions about current events which allowed for discussions among students."
Cordelia Gilligan, class of 2019
"I feel like the critical thinking skills I gained from the class enabled me to find significant problems in the world around me and think about constructive solutions. I also feel like the class allowed me to become more accepting of all different branches of ideas and understand the root of them. This makes all those around me more understandable and gives me the skills to work with all of those who hold different beliefs."
Emile Charles, class of 2019
