Urban Studies Minor

The urban studies minor is intended to help students understand how cities develop, how the physical environment of cities influences human behavior, and how to address such seemingly intractable urban problems as poverty, homelessness, and troubled schools. This minor may be combined with any other major or minor. A minimum of 9 credits must be exclusive to the minor and cannot be counted toward any other majors/minors/certificate programs. At least 9 credits of the minor must be at the 3000/4000 level.
