The article discusses the graduate program at Western Reserve University on American Culture which was started in 1938. The curriculum for this field is controlled by the Graduate Committee in American Culture which is responsible for the philosophy and scope of this field of integrated studies. This committee has also conducted an independent graduate course in which all members of the committee participate. This has been extended to two courses in 1946-47. These courses are entitled, "Introduction to the Study of American Culture" and a comprehensive examination to test the students' knowledge of the American cultural heritage completes the course.
