Urban Studies Major - Urban Education Specialization
Urban Studies majors may select the
Urban Education Specialization.
This is a major, not a minor, offered through the Urban Studies Program in conjunction with the Education Program.
Urban Studies majors pursuing this specialization must meet with an Education Program faculty member for advising at the time of major declaration. We encourage you to plan ahead carefully if you wish to pursue this option. Please file an Urban Education Specialization Declaration Form so that we can plan for your participation.
