    Course Content

    The undergraduate minor in American Studies at Rutgers-Newark explores American politics, culture and society in Newark, northern New Jersey and around the world. Our courses embrace interdisciplinary methods and draw on disciplines ranging from English to sociology to history.
    Our students conduct research in traditional academic settings and also learn to interpret American culture as it is expressed in cities and suburbs, cultural institutions, and everyday life. Research, analysis and writing are central to our major, but we also encourage students to work in the public humanities in ways that encourage dialogue between our university and the public around us.

    USA requirements for international students

    Each university in the Unites States of America sets its own admission standards so there isn't the same criteria for all the students and the university can decide which applicants meet those standards. The fee for each application is between $35 to $100. 

    After the selections of the universities you want to attend, the best of all would be to contact each university for an application form and more admission information for the international students. Moreover, for a graduate or postgraduate program it's necessary to verify the admission requirements. Some programs require that you send your application directly to their department. 

    Admissions decisions are based on students's academic record and different test scores, such as TOEFL, the SAT or ACT (for undergraduate programs) and GRE or GMAT (for graduate programs). Admission decision is based on your academic results and motivation.
