Students choosing to study American Studies at Lincoln have the opportunity to join a vibrant academic community. We research and teach in exciting areas, from colonial American history to twentieth-century fiction, from Hollywood cinema and Broadway musicals, to the Cold War and the American presidency. Students can share in our research and we aim to support you as you access unique resources for your own research, such as the Lincolnshire Archives, which contains records from before 1620, the year the Mayflower sailed with pilgrims from Lincolnshire.

Students can develop a wide range of skills to suit a range of future careers, and may have the opportunity to spend a term at an American university in the second year of study. Students can explore a range of subjects that reflect the variety and richness of research and teaching within the College of Arts, which includes film and media, drama and music, literature and cultural studies, visual and material culture, social and political history, gender studies, cultural and digital heritage.
