BA Entering Class of 2006

American Studies Leipzig has welcomed its first BA students. The American Studies Leipzig BA Class of 2006 consists of twenty-seven students from around Germany. Almost two-thirds of the entering class has already spent substantial time (e.g. high school year abroad, au-pair experience) in the United States. Their reasons for pursuing American Studies are diverse, ranging from being fascinated by the country generally, to being a fan of its contemporary popular culture, to wanting to further a better German-American dialog.

Religion in US Culture and Society

The study tour started in Washington D.C. since the capital is a focus of activities centering on the federal government. The students then went to Virginia, where they visited a fundamentalist organization (American Values) and two research institutes. From there, the tour went on to Nashville, Tennessee within the “Bible Belt” and eventually to liberal New England. There students traced the roots and remains of the Puritan heritage (Congregationalism), as well as learned of the impact of the Catholic Church, and the importance of church-affiliated schools.
