Requirements

Minor in Urban Studies

The minor in Urban Studies is designed to complement a variety of majors throughout the curriculum. No major is available.

Spending a semester In the Loop? Most In the Loop students will fulfill ¾ of the Urban Studies minor requirements (two internship credits, LOOP 202, and a methods course) as part of their major. That means you only need two additional courses to complete the minor: the core course URBS 120/HIST 235: American Cities, and one of the electives listed below.

Requirements for the Minor:

  • Core course for all students: Urban Studies 120 /  History 235: US Cities
  • One methodology course: Minors are expected to take one methodology course that is related to the types of research they are likely to do in Urban Studies. The following methodology courses are already approved. Other methodology courses may be taken to meet this requirement in consultation with the chair of Urban Studies.  NOTE: many of the courses below have prerequisites or are restricted to majors.
