An Urban Studies Minor

A three-year curriculum development project to create an urban studies minor program.

To address the challenges facing cities today, benefit students pursuing careers in non-humanities fields, and expand the reach of the humanities throughout its curriculum, Albertus Magnus College proposes a three-year NEH Humanities Connections implementation project to establish a new interdisciplinary minor in urban studies. This project will include (1) collaborative development of three new interdisciplinary courses, (2) revision of two existing courses, (3) creation of experiential learning activities tied to required courses for the minor, and (4) implementation of innovative pedagogical methods such as cross-disciplinary team teaching. By infusing the humanities with other disciplines in an examination of urban life, the minor in urban studies will enhance the curriculum for students pursuing careers in a wide range of fields, particularly those that include the largest number of majors at Albertus: sociology and business.
