Emma Hagger - American Studies student (2010)

I have mostly loved the variety available in American Studies, in my first year I have learnt about American history, politics, literature, music and more, and have developed an understanding of America as a place and culture and gained insight into a country that is often mis-portrayed in the media.

The course is varied and interesting, the lecturers know so much about their subjects and are always willing to impart this to their students!

As part of Keele’s Study Abroad programme I will also be studying at San Diego State University next semester, which is an incredible opportunity to experience American culture firsthand.

I would recommend the course to anyone, it has been a fantastic first year!
