The Urban Studies Program normally offers courses in fall, spring and summer terms, with courses held in the evenings at the Harbour Centre campus in downtown Vancouver. We offer most courses only once per year or in some cases 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.
External students: If you are a student in another graduate program, you will need permission from your senior supervisor or graduate chair to join our courses and may enroll only after the two-week priority registration period for urban studies students has ended, assuming there is space in the course at that time. Please forward the permission to our program manager at email@example.com.
*Note: Due to the online delivery of summer 2021 courses, please pay extra attention to the details of synchronous (live) online meetings that instructors have provided in their linked course outlines, when they become available. In some cases, the length and timing of those meetings may vary from the standard times given below.
Please also take note that since all courses will be delivered online, they will all require acess to a computer with a camera and microphone as well as use of platforms such as Canvas, Blackboard Collaborate and Zoom. See outlines for any course-specific platform information.
SUMMER 2021 FACE-TO-FACE ACTIVITIES
See the course outlines, when they become available, for planned F2F activities, if any. Your instructors will provide more details about these in their syllabi and/or Canvas and through in-class discussions.
