Since the beginning of the University, American Studies enjoy undiminished popularity. The programme focuses on the role of the United States in international relations. It also counts their dominant position in the global economy and culture. It covers topics from the history of the United States (from the eighteenth century to the present), the ideology of ‘Americana’, the political system and the system of local government, foreign policy before and after the World War II. The attractiveness of the specialty is increased by planned internships in the United States and the student exchange programme organised in collaboration with the Association of Polish Clubs in the United States.
