Urban Studies majors may select a specialization in Urban Teaching (formerly known as the 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 a Declaration of Intent to Specialize in Education so that we can plan for your participation.
Note: If you wish to fulfill a requirement with a course not listed below, please fill out the Petition to Count a Course for an Education Requirement.
