Urban Studies Immersion

Semester Requirements

Metropolitan areas must address such enduring issues as poverty, homelessness, affordable housing, transportation, education, crime, safety, recreation, and economic development. Each must do so with recognition of its place in the wider regional, national, and global contexts. The urban studies immersion helps students identify and analyze such fundamental issues and allows them to explore and assess various ways policy-makers respond to those issues. This immersion is closed to students majoring in sociology and anthropology who have chosen the urban studies track.
