Degrees by Coursework

 

US Studies are interdisciplinary courses with units of study that can be tailored to meet individual needs and interests.

All students complete USSC6901 Fundamentals of US Studies plus a flexible range of core units and electives.

Some units are offered intensively and others as semester-length units, with most classes held in the evening.

Candidates who have completed previous study in a relevant discipline may be eligible for a reduction in the requirements for the Master of US Studies in accordance with the requirements on http://sydney.edu.au/handbooks/arts_PG/areas_of_study/us_studies.shtml

There are also course reductions available for candidates with relevant full-time professional work experience. Please contact the Masters Coordinator, Aaron Nyerges, at aaron.nyerges@sydney.edu.au to discuss.
