The urban and regional studies minor has been formulated specifically for those students not enrolled in the program of urban and regional studies and who are interested in complementing their current academic program with an introduction to various facets of urban studies (domestic, environmental, international, professional, urban affairs).
Students meeting the requirements for this minor should complete this form which, when validated by the Department of City and Regional Planning, serves as evidence of completion of the minor requirements. Students should consult their individual college registrars for information about whether their home college recognizes and notes such minors on transcripts. The curriculum for students in the Minor in URS Program for Nonmajors totals a minimum of at least 6 courses (minimum total of 18 credit hours) in the Department of City and Regional Planning (CRP). Grades must be C or better in all courses used for minor credit.
Questions regarding the minor can be addressed in the Department of City and Regional Planning office located in 106 West Sibley Hall.

The student meets with the home college faculty advisor. Upon completion of course requirements, the student completes a URS Minor Application form. The URS program director (URS Minor Advisor) also verifies completion of the minor and signs the form. The CRP department verifies course completion and grades for minor requirements, signs the application form, and sends a notification to the student's home college. The home college will post on the student's transcript.
