To earn a certificate in American studies, students must complete 12 credit hours of applicable courses at UNT (Denton campus) with a grade of C or above. There is great flexibility in how students may choose to configure their particular concentration within American studies. Of the 12 hours, at least 9 hours must be at the 3000 and 4000 levels, at least two courses must be outside the student’s major discipline, at least one course must be in English, and at least one course must be in history (though the Core Curriculum classes in American history do not count).
The following courses may be applied toward the American studies certificate. Designated sections of other courses may also count, subject to approval by the certificate advisor.
