Who We Are
The Urban Studies Program hosts one of the larger graduate programs in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences and is co-developing an undergraduate Major in Urban Worlds. Located in the heart of downtown Vancouver, our faculty and students explore the many different ways to make cities better. We use our neighbourhood, city, and region as living laboratories and pursue community engagement through collaborative projects and innovative partnerships. Our alumni range from former Mayors to developers, with planners and activists in between.
