Urban Studies

Behind the scenes of a major metropolis like Boston or fast-growing, up-and-comers, you’ll find professionals dedicated to that city’s development and revitalization, resources and planning, and the health and happiness of residents. Wheaton’s urban studies minor blends courses from economics, political science, sociology, psychology, and anthropology. Learn about mapping and public health. Explore urban movements like modernism in France or the Harlem renaissance. Follow a city through the decades in classes like monuments and mayhem in Berlin. This is an ideal minor for students majoring in related fields such as political science, public policy, and Hispanic studies.
