Urban Studies

Liberal Arts & Professional Studies

Certificates allow you to complete a specific group of university courses (for credit) as either part of your degree studies or separately. Additional details on certificates are available here.

Drawing on the work of scholars and researchers who have explored the urban field from a range of perspectives in the social sciences and humanities, the program’s courses encourage a critical appreciation both of the everyday life that we experience as Canadian city-dwellers today, as well as of the modern city in historical and comparative context.

Who can take it?

This certificate is open to current York students in a degree program.

How to apply

If you are a current York student in a degree program, contact the Urban Studies program to find out about admissibility requirements and the application process.
