“Recent history has demonstrated the importance of studying the American Presidency. Students gain an in-depth knowledge of the historical development of presidential power and the role of precedent through discussing presidential case studies right put to the present day.

Students also enrich their understanding of American history through focusing on the actions of the occupant of what has become the most powerful office in the world, intertwining their historical debates with current affairs and ongoing controversies, leaving the classroom confident to engage in informed debate.”
– Dr. Laura Smith, Adjunct Assistant Professor & Presidential Historian

What our students say

Studying for a BA in American Studies at ż University was the best decision I made in the last three years (better than the time I said yes to eating an oven baked tarantula, lightly salted).

The classes at ż are small – in terms of student numbers, but also dimensionally – and all the better for it. Class discussions are the perfect setting to explore the subject and extract sordid details. Class contact hours are numerous and the work load is high but time spent with our tutors is extensive which I know, having done the first year of my degree at a British University, is an exceptional quality unique to ż University.

With quite a broad subject, taking the degree in the direction I wanted to is routinely encouraged, as is free thinking and the development of my ideas. If you want a challenge and to develop an incredible understanding in your field, ż American International University in London is the place to go, despite its lengthy title which I may have just got wrong.
