About the Program
The Urban Studies Program is a multidisciplinary major designed to provide students with the academic foundation necessary to understand and be sensitive to the problems and potential of the city and its environment. Students become acquainted with approaches to the study of urbanization through courses offered by several departments including, but not limited to, accounting, architecture, economics, philosophy, political science, psychology, historic preservation and community planning, history, management, and sociology. A background in Urban Studies provides excellent preparation for a variety of careers as planners, program directors, administrators, and researchers in local, state and federal government and also in nonprofit and private organizations.
