Centre for the Study of the United States (CSUS)

Annimated gif of classic US iconsIntroduction

Housed in the Munk School of Global Affairs, the Centre for the Study of the United States (CSUS) was established in 1999 to build and promote the University’s resources in American Studies and U.S.-focused research and teaching. With over 75 faculty affiliates, we have an unprecedented strength in U.S. expertise and in American Studies, both institutionally and nationally. Our vision is to build on our position as Canada’s premier site of interdisciplinary U.S.-focused research, teaching, and public programming. We bridge the social sciences and the humanities in our work, as well as collaborate closely with scholars in law, business, and public policy. We balance a focus on the U.S. as an object of study with transnational, comparative, and international approaches. CSUS offers a vibrant, interdisciplinary, undergraduate program in American Studies. The program features outstanding faculty, small classes, topical courses, as well as an annual undergraduate journal.
