Welcome to Urban Studies

The comprehensive study of cities – in all of their social, economic, environmental and political complexity – is crucial to a sustainable global future.

We train urbanists. In our two interdisciplinary graduate education programs, we aim to strike a balance between academic and professional training and to produce graduates who have the diverse and specialized skill sets, broad knowledge base and the flexibility needed to tackle today's urban challenges.
