Cities as Laboratories
As the world becomes increasingly more urban, cities around the globe have become incubators for creating solutions to the many complex issues our society is facing. Fordham's solutions-oriented, interdisciplinary master's program in urban studies prepares students to tackle the challenges confronting urban society in a range of areas:
Inequality and social justice
Environment and sustainability
Urban arts and creative industries
Historic preservation and gentrification
Technology and the development of "smart" cities
With New York City as their laboratory, students design a unique course of study tailored to their own interests. They develop a nuanced understanding of the powerful forces that are shaping the world's cities and gain the problem-solving skills required to improve quality of life.
Fordham's master's in urban studies prepares students for a wide variety of careers in public, nonprofit, and private settings:
Designed as a 16-to-24-month program, Fordham's M.A. in Urban Studies offers evening classes at the university's Lincoln Center campus in Manhattan and its Rose Hill campus in the Bronx. Students are admitted to this program on a rolling basis.
Curriculum requirements include three core courses, seven elective courses, fieldwork, and the completion of a master's thesis for a total of 36 units. Students' master's thesis topics are directly tied to research and fieldwork.
