THE MINOR IN URBAN STUDIES

Cities are physical environments; they are social settings; they are economic phenomena; they are political arenas. An understanding of these complex social structures can come only from an analysis that transcends the narrow perspective of any single discipline.

The minor in urban studies offers students a chance to study the processes and problems of urbanization from a variety of perspectives. It is designed with enough flexibility to allow a student to choose among many possible combinations, but requires her to experience at least three different disciplinary approaches.

The minor consists of six courses from the following list but must contain choices from at least three different departments or programs. Courses offered at other Five College campuses may be included in the minor, with the approval of one of the advisers. Please consult home departments for year and semester each course is offered.
