The University of Gdańsk American Studies program is unique in Poland. Based on a long and successful tradition of language and literature studies at the University, it receives consistently high ratings from candidates and students.

American Studies at the University of Gdańsk offer a rich program consisting of advanced practical langauge teaching, and courses in descriptive grammar, sociolinguistics, British and Irish literature, American philosophy and literature, the visual arts in the USA, US theater and film, and the politics and social development of the USA. Contemporary American culture, in its ethnic complexity, is an important component of several courses.

Students can follow courses in American Studies on a full-time basis for six semesters at BA level (level I). They may also, if they fulfill entrance requirements, follow courses on a full-time basis for four semesters in an MA studies program.

Courses are conducted by specialists in the fields of American literature and culture, by theater studies specialists, art historians, media scholars, creative writers, and linguists.
