In Metro-Urban Studies, it’s not just the Twin Cities that serves as our classroom, but world cities!

We have offered month-long travel courses, such as Sustainable Cities in North America that visited Portland, Oregon and Vancouver, British Columbia.

We also recommend the following off-campus study programs that have both semester-length and summer offerings:

Higher Education Consortium for Urban Affairs (HECUA)

IES Metropolitan Studies in Berlin

Danish Institute of Study Abroad Urban Studies in Europe

If you are interested in off-campus study in Urban Studies, please contact Nancy Fischer, the Director of the Metro-Urban Studies Program.
