"It was the first class I took that wasn't exclusively a history class or a literature class or an English class, so it was the first class that presented topics in a dynamic, multi-faceted way. Every American Studies class was sure to have interesting discussion and to challenge me to make connections between books we read and events or movements we learned about."

"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."
