What is Urban Studies?

Urban Studies is a field of study that creates innovative, real-world knowledge of the challenges and opportunities of city life. Both inside and outside the classroom, the Urban Studies Department reaps the advantage of the immense complexity and diversity both of New York City as a preeminent global city, and Queens as one of the most diverse counties in the United States. In Urban Studies, we emphasize a multi-disciplinary approach and offer perspectives and faculty expertise in anthropology, sociology, political science, urban planning, history, and other fields.
