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. To see full list of courses, please click here.
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.
