About Urban Studies

The Urban Studies Minor provides students with an interdisciplinary consideration of the diverse social, cultural, economic, political, and spatial issues confronting contemporary American cities. The majority of the minor is comprised of an experiential semester in one of America's largest and most diverse metropolitan areas--Chicago. This program involves living, learning, and working in the city and offers opportunities for students in a wide range of programs, from art to economics to premed. The goal of the minor is to enhance students' career opportunities, particularly through the internship, while equipping them to contribute meaningfully to public life and discourse.
