If you want to make communities better places to live, then the Urban Affairs major is right for you! By 2050, two-thirds of the world's population will be urban. Population growth expands the need for efficient and effective use of scarce resources, for thoughtful policies, plans and programs that deal with problems of safety, economic opportunity and poverty and that develop and sustain a healthy quality of life, and for educated leaders and administrators who have vision, communication skills and can organize and manage a skilled workforce. Become prepared for professional positions in government, nonprofits and private sector businesses.
Are you interested in the connection between people and places? Then Geography is the right major for you! The major prepares you for professional positions in a broad range of fields, including government, engineering and architectural firms, commercial and real estate development, intelligence gathering and many others.
Ready to begin your professional public service career or seeking career advancement? The MPA program may be right for you! Our evening courses better serve our busy students, and the program may be completed through part-time or full-time enrollment. DON'T DELAY!
When the Dayton Business Journal announced its 40 under Forty for 2015, we were not too surprised to see so many Wright State graduates and employees on the list, including four from our department!
