1st for American Studies in the UK

Just to follow up on the recent news that we've recently be named the number one American Studies programme in the country in the Guardian University Guide for 2015. As part of this year's poll the subject rankings league table found that 95.5% of students were satisfied with their course, whilst 96.4% were satisfied with their overall teaching experience whilst at UEA.

In terms of the guide's institutional rankings, UEA has risen to 14th place - the university's highest ever league table position. The university has jumped three places, from 17th last year, in the UK’s most widely read university ranking. The Guardian University Guide ranks UK universities in a range of categories including teaching, student-staff ratios, entry tariffs and career prospects. The result is the latest league table success for UEA, following a climb to 15th in the Complete University Guide and a second year in the top 3 of the Times Higher Education Student Experience Survey.

You can find out more about the benefits of an American Studies degree here, whilst the Guardian's summary of what UEA offers as an institution can be found here. Information about what courses and modules we offer in American Studies at UEA can be found here and please do consider booking a place on one of our forthcoming open days.
