If you study the MLitt in American Studies you will benefit from the strong links with the Andrew Hook Centre for American Studies.

Since the seventeenth century Glasgow has been a gateway for economic, social and cultural exchange between Scotland and North America.  From the tobacco trade to the annual Transatlantic Sessions concerts, these connections provide the foundation for American Studies at the University of Glasgow.

In 1997 the Andrew Hook Centre became Scotland’s only centre for American Studies. The Centre brings together academics from across the university to create a focus for research and teaching in the history, literature, media and culture of the United States. Staff associated with the Centre are based primarily in the subject areas of History; English Literature; Theatre, Film and Television Studies; Music and Politics.
