Programs of Study

Elmhurst offers both a major and a minor in urban studies.

Both programs are based on the belief that the best way to understand great cities is to experience them, and both follow three paths to learning:

  • A solid foundation of theoretical knowledge, acquired in small classes with an emphasis on discussion and interaction
  • Practical experience gained in internships, participation in political campaigns, and other kinds of field work
  • Off-campus studies that provide the opportunity to compare cities and countries, and give you broad perspective on common urban issues
