Course Description

Course Profile

The American Studies Center is an interdisciplinary research and higher-education institution of the University of Warsaw. Its faculty members specialize in various fields of knowledge about the US and Latin America—culture, literature, arts, film, media, history, economy, politics, history of ideas, society, and law.
The ASC has a full-time liberal arts master program. It lasts two years or four semesters. Instruction is in English by permanent and adjunct faculty. Additionally, students are offered classes in Spanish. Among our permanent faculty are four US-born professors and one professor of political science from Mexico.
The MA Program in American Studies, with the Western Hemispheric studies component, is unique in the Polish higher education system. The program is meant to help develop research skills (especially through the system of research proseminars) and offers courses on the United States of America, Latin American, and the whole region of the Western Hemisphere.
In addition, students have opportunities to develop skills other than those needed for conducting research; they become proficient in the so-called “soft skills” which they need both in academia and outside (e.g., self-presentation, teamwork, intercultural communication, work organization, and effective time management).
