Green Bay, WI, United States
Urban and Regional Studies gives students who want to make a difference in their community the experience and skills that they will need to transform and revitalize older neighborhoods, to design and plan new suburban communities; and to better the lives and well-being of persons across metropolitan and rural regions.

Overview

Coursework in the major includes introductory and advanced courses in many of the social science disciplines that contribute to the broader field of urban studies -- including economics, geography, political science, psychology, and sociology -- as well as professional fields such as urban design and urban and regional planning. All students engage in theoretical and applied studies with a special problem focus on people, groups, and institutions within the urban community.  While the major serves as an important gateway to the many urban-related careers in the public, private, and non-profit sector, it also serves as a broad-based, interdisciplinary social science major or minor.
