Urban Studies Minor

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Division of University Studies

The Minor and Core Concentration in Urban Studies offers students from both the Liberal Arts and the Professional Schools a multi-disciplinary perspective on one of  humankind’s most important achievements. Urban Studies seeks to illuminate the enormous potential and persistent problems of urban life. Ours is an urban century. Urban populations are now in the majority for the first time in human history and the rapid urbanization of India and China will likely accelerate this trend. An understanding of “Globalization” also relies on an understanding of the role of “Global Cities” and their relation to the legacy of great cities throughout history. Urban Studies complements many existing majors and can also lead to graduate study in a range of related fields.
