Core Curriculum

Our Urban Studies major is structured around three core classes that allow students to gain a richer appreciation of the discipline, its major texts, central arguments, and critical perspectives. These three courses prepare students for their post-graduate years, whether they attend graduate school or enter the workforce.

Areas of Concentration

In addition to the core classes, students must complete seven classes in one of three areas of concentration. Each of these concentrations is designed to make more complex studentsí understanding of particular aspects of the urban experience.

Graduate Study

Students interested in graduate study in Urban Studies, or a related field, are strongly encouraged to take these courses.
