Minor Requirements

The Urban Studies minor requires a total of 18 credits.  A total of three courses can be used to count for both a student’s major, another minor, and the Urban Studies minor.  However, 3 upper-level Urban Studies courses (300 or above) courses must be used exclusively to meet the minor requirements (ie. cannot also meet major or other minor requirements). 

All Urban Studies courses may also count for Distribution and University Studies requirements.

New approved courses are added every semester, so interested students should check with the Urban Studies Director for up-to-date lists.

A minor must be completed at the time of the degree and will be so noted in the student’s transcript.  A student cannot be readmitted to the University to complete only a minor.
