Urban Studies Courses

Urban Studies is an interdisciplinary major. See the BABS, and Minor requirements for a full list of possible courses

There are three Colloquia courses (3201/3202) each term and 2 workshop (3500)courses. Because they are taught by outside practitioners, they do not always appear early on the class schedule. Pay attention to the urbs-undergrad emails for class descriptions and when permission numbers are available.  

All students are required to do one internship for 140 hours while enrolled in UrbS 3986, Internship Seminar. All majors also complete a Capstone research paper while enrolled in UrbS 3955.
