    Presentación

    Keele was a pioneer in American Studies in Britain in the 1960s, and this remains one of the leading programmes in the UK.

    America is the largest industrial nation, and a superpower. From music to McDonald’s, movies to military engagement, it impacts on the daily lives of people in every corner of the world. If you want to understand current events and culture, you must understand historical and contemporary America. American Studies at Keele examines historical, literary, cinematic, political and geographical perspectives on issues such as slavery, crime, power, imperialism, conflict, security and the presidency, and compares the USA with Great Britain. You could choose to spend a year studying abroad at a partner university in the USA or Canada.
