What's unique about this major at UWGB

Urban and Regional Studies is one of only a dozen undergraduate programs in the country where you can earn a degree in urban and regional studies. You will join a very select group of students from just a handful of universities across the country when you major in this program

The faculty in urban and regional studies bring together perspectives from a variety of disciplines, including architecture, economics, ethnic studies, physical and human geography, political science, psychology and sociology. Urban and regional studies faculty have traveled widely and have lived and conducted research in many countries outside of the United States. In addition to teaching in the program, faculty are active in applied work in northeast Wisconsin, including work with community and grass-roots organizations, organizing neighborhood resource centers, participating in city and county task forces and planning committees, and consulting for government and international agencies.
