The Minor in Urban Studies has a liberal arts orientation: it combines perspectives from the social sciences, architecture, history, and the humanities. As such, it is a useful complement to majors such as History, Geography, Sociology, Anthropology, Literature, Art History, Economics, Political Science, and others.

The Minor should also be of particular interest to students in the School of Architecture and the School of Business. Note that URB 201 and URB 301 may fulfill general education requirements in A&S, ARC, and BUS.
