The urban studies concentration does not have pre-designed tracks; instead, students are able to select courses that together address particular themes or issues, e.g. urban planning and design, cities and climate change, urban history and culture, etc.
All students take the following:
- 1 Introductory course
- 1 Research Methods course
- 3 Basic Curriculum: Core courses
- 3 Basic Curriculum: Seminar courses
- 2 Complementary Curriculum courses
- Capstone Project or Honors Thesis
For a complete list of courses that currently count for urban studies credit, please consult the most recent version of the concentration worksheet, which is updated each semester. It is strongly encouraged that all concentration requirements be taken for a grade with the possible exception of the research methods requirement.
If you are interested in declaring urban studies as your concentration or have any questions about the courses and requirements, you should make an appointment to speak with one of our faculty members or reach out to the Director of Undergraduate Studies, Professor Lauren Yapp at firstname.lastname@example.org.
