The Department of American Studies has two interdisciplinary minors that we encourage students to explore.
The Gallivan Program in Journalism, Ethics, and Democracy
The Gallivan Program in Journalism, Ethics, and Democracy offers a minor or concentration for students interested in becoming journalists at print, broadcast, or online news organizations. Requirements of the Gallivan Program include successful completion of five courses focusing on journalism and a professional news internship during either the academic year or a summer.
Sport, Media, and Culture Minor
The minor in Sport, Media, and Culture (SMAC) invites students to examine the cultural politics of sport from a scholarly point of view, and to practice them with an eye towards social justice and the dignity of every human being.
