American Studies

The study American Studies is deeply rooted in questions like; What does it actually mean to be an American and what is American culture all about? US has a tremendous impact on our world today, both as the greatest superpower, but also as a source of inspiration for Western culture. The study involves a variety of disciplines to achieve its objective to understand and analyze the American cultural identity.

When you talk about getting "American conditions" in Denmark, this is where you find out what this requires. Often the words used in a negative context, but during the training, you will be able to assess whether you think it is positive or negative, or perhaps more conglomerate than that, and there are several angles to see things from.

It is possible to take various modules within other institutions, for example, journalism or political science, and thus achieve a broad range of skills. All teaching is in English. Another interesting aspect of the study is the opportunity to study abroad at renowned American universities in recent semesters of study. So if you have interest in American affairs such as politics, religion, economy, culture and other related areas, then this training maybe an idea.

It is often the marketing methods in the United States is not welcome in Denmark and Europe and vice versa. It is a very important thing to know for companies who want to export to the United States, or for companies that import from the United States. Therefore, you can work as an important part of a company if you know about these conditions in the US. When the United States also are divided into states, and each state has its own rules, a bit like in Europe, it is also relevant to know these differences.

The best way to get to know the differences is to stay over there. If you get an internship in a company in the US, so you can learn about the country from the inside and get an even better understanding of the culture and politics and why the United States is still the greatest superpower in the world.
