Urban Studies

What You'll Study

What is Urban Studies? An interdisciplinary, undergraduate program at Stanford that combines academic approaches with real-world experience to understand cities. If you've ever wondered why people live in cities (or suburbs), how the physical environment influences behavior, or how to address seemingly intractable problems like urban poverty, homelessness, or troubled schools, Urban Studies may be for you. Please see 15/16 bulletin and Urban Studies website for more info.
