Careers in Urban Studies

As an Urban Studies Major or Minor, you can follow in the footsteps of our graduates who now work for the city, state, and federal government or in the non-profit sector for community-based organizations. Others have gone on to graduate work in fields like public administration, law, urban planning, and social work. And others work in the private sector.

Many of our students are mid-career workers in state and local government, some are teachers or school administrators, and many work in community planning. All of our students wish to upgrade their skills and their understanding of urban issues while getting the credential of an undergraduate degree.
