Study abroad

 

Many Urban Studies majors opt to take a semester abroad, and those who do are often inspired to write about the cities they visit on their travels. While it's certainly not mandatory, we encourage you to consider the study abroad option as you plan your course track. Keep in mind that whichever section of the Junior Colloquium you miss while abroad, you will be able to take that section during your senior year, concurrently with your Senior Seminar. For more information, contact your advisor, or talk to the Program Director.
