Worcester State University
Urban Studies Department

About Us
The goal of our department is to foster an understanding of the complex challenges that face our increasingly urban and metropolitan world. The field of urban studies uses an interdisciplinary approach to understanding metropolitan life. We immerse students in an academically rigorous and personally challenging course of study that helps them discover who they are, and how they can become change agents in our global society. 
Urban studies fosters the development of critical thinking skills necessary to function effectively in today's competitive world. Our department's graduates enjoy outstanding careers in a wide variety of occupations, such as public administration, non-profit management, urban planning, business, law, human services, health care management, housing management, gerontology, and social work.
