Urban Studies (Interdisciplinary)
Coordinator: Professor Donna Kirchheimer (Carman Hall, Room 357)
Many students with majors in the social sciences wish to focus their course work on the problems of cities. Participation in the Urban Studies specialization enables these students to pursue their interests in a more structured way, while at the same time completing all course work requirements in their own majors. Participation in the Urban Studies specialization in no way replaces a major. Rather, it provides a setting for students to choose their elective courses around urban themes, to meet students and faculty from other majors who share these concerns, and to participate in interdisciplinary Urban Studies seminars and field research.
