Urban Studies

If cities fascinate you and you want some hands-on experience included in your course credits, the urban studies program is for you. This is a small program that gives students the opportunity to learn by doing. Our graduates have gone on to a variety of careers in such areas as planning, public relations, law, politics, real estate and community development.

Advice for First Year

First year requirements depend on whether students want to enter the specialist, major or minor options. If a student wants to enter the specialist they will need to have three full social science courses in first year. The major option requires two full social science courses in first year. The minor is the only option that requires only one full course.
