A minor in urban studies is a valuable asset to almost any major. Business students in particular can benefit from the political, economic, and historical lessons taught by studying cities.
An urban studies minor consists of a minimum of four (4) courses. Two of the core courses, URB 210 Cities and URB 291 Suburbia must be taken. The remaining two courses should be selected from any other urban studies courses (URB); one of POL 202, POL 300, or POL 360; a Chicago Semester; a Washington, D.C. Semester; or a study abroad term with an urban studies focus.
