This interdisciplinary program is designed to introduce students to a variety of topics and issues in urban community development. Students will be exposed to community-based local, national, and international social, political, and economic analyses, as well as to political figures, philosophies, theories, and movements. The minor is designed especially for students who wish to combine an interest in community development with majors such as African and African American Studies, Anthropology, Economics, Geography, History, Latin American and Puerto Rican Studies, Philosophy, Political Science, and Sociology.

Degree Requirements

Students will satisfy the College requirement of a minor field by taking four courses (12-15 credits), at least two of which must be at the 300 level or higher.
