Welcome to Urban Affairs!

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.
