American Studies

The American Studies curriculum is designed to help you think reflectively and make critical decisions.

At Montreat, we see American Studies as an avenue for critical thinking, exploration, and cultural appreciation. Our students examine American history, beliefs, and values—concentrating on how these elements inform a perspective on the larger world.

Our American Studies program addresses the movement and cultural shifts of people, commerce, and ideas within the United States.
