Buddhism in AmericaProfessor Thomas Tweed and his "Buddhism in America" class in the midst of discussion

In the Department of American Studies, we believe that a complete education should take place both inside and outside of the classroom.

We offer courses exploring the wilderness of Indiana, the “ruins” of Detroit, the campus of Notre Dame, and beyond. In the classroom, we offer a wide breadth of courses that allow you to study what interests you. With American Studies, you can truly study everything.
