The Urban Studies Program normally offers courses in Fall, Spring and Summer semesters, with courses held in the evenings at the Harbour Centre campus in downtown Vancouver. Some courses may be offered once per year or less frequently, depending on student demand and faculty availability.

Urban Studies graduate students receive priority registration for the first two weeks of the registration period. Students in other graduate programs require permission to join our courses, pending available space. Please contact Terri Evans at for registration information.
