The U-M Program in American Culture is among the most dynamic units on the campus. Its intellectual development focuses on a rethinking of interdisciplinarity. In the spirit of the most creative and responsible scholarship of the new millennium, the Program is moving its intellectual center beyond a coalition of disciplinary specialists laboring in a collaborative relationship and toward the production of scholars whose accomplishments express a genuine synthesis of methods. Moreover, a critical constituent of this process is the reformulation of a vision of American cultures without borders, in an international framework, and with the study of Asian Americans, Latina/os, Native Americans, Arab Americans, and African Americans pivotal to teaching and research. Our goal is to enrich the investigation of American culture by engaging in a refashioning of the more traditional areas of the field of American Studies, together with attentiveness to budding subjects of new study within disciplines across the social sciences and humanities.
Each Career Guide highlights curriculum requirements, as well as skills and abilities that may be developed and applied through each course of study. To complement the academic information, a range of interesting occupational opportunities are listed as a starting point for considering how academic experiences may translate to professional work settings. The Career Guide series represents a collaborative effort between The Career Center and numerous academic units.
