The urban and regional studies minor requires the completion of five courses (15 credits) including the following:
URB 101 Introduction to Urban Studies
Two courses from the list of Urban and Regional Studies Dedicated Courses
Two courses from the list of Urban and Regional Studies Allied Courses
Students intending to pursue the minor should meet with the director of the program to develop an official Plan of Study for completing the five-course requirement. Each plan will adhere to the two following curricular regulations:
• Consistent with the interdisciplinary nature of the minor, three of the five courses listed on the Plan of Study must come from outside the student’s major.
• Within the 15-credit requirement, at least one course listed on the Plan of Study shall serve as a capstone course and/or experience. This requirement may be met in two ways:
1. One 400-level course from the dedicated or allied course lists may be used to fulfill the requirement.
2. A 400-level internship, directed study course, or departmental honors project, which has been approved by the director, may be used to fulfill this requirement. This approval will come after the faculty supervisor of the 400-level internship, course or project and the director of the Urban and Regional Studies minor have reached an agreement on how the 400-level course will meet the capstone expectations of the Urban and Regional Studies minor. If this option is pursued, the director waives three credits from either the dedicated or allied course requirements.
