Urban Studies

Urban Studies majors at LMU examine urbanization and the multitude of issues inherent in urban life from the perspective of a wide range of disciplines and methodological traditions. The critical analysis of urban issues helps students evaluate the various political, sociocultural, and economic strategies available to urban planners, local governments, nonprofit organizations, law enforcement agencies, and others seeking to remedy the problems of contemporary cities. The Urban Studies major encourages students to take advantage of the extraordinarily dynamic and diverse nature of urban Los Angeles.
