NOTE: If you declared before August 1, 2014, please consult the Stanford Bulletin for the year you declared.  The major (or minor) requirements for that year remain the requirements that you must meet for graduation.  If you have any questions, please consult Student Services Officer Daniela Fields.


Minor in Urban Studies

The minor in Urban Studies is designed to introduce students to several disciplinary approaches to the study of cities, and provides the opportunity to explore one of four specialized options:

  • Cities in comparative and historical perspective
  • Urban education
  • Urban society and social change
  • Urban sustainability

The minor in Urban Studies requires completion of seven courses for a letter grade, including the five core courses, the required course in the student's chosen concentration area, and one additional course in that option as listed in the "Bachelor of Arts in Urban Studies" section of this bulletin

Keep in mind that courses counted toward a minor cannot also be counted toward a major.
