Earning the Urban Studies Minor

The credits you earn in Semester in Detroit count towards the LSA Minor in Urban Studies -- which requires you to enroll in at least five classes for a total of at least 16 credit hours. 

If participating in the fall program, one additional core course on the Ann Arbor campus is required (either RCSSCI 330 or UP 425); spring students will have to take two additional courses on the Ann Arbor campus to fulfill the minor requirements (including one of the two core courses previously mentioned). Previous SiD students from the spring programs have taken classes like AmCult 301 (“Detroit Politics and Community Organizing”) and History 364 (“History of Suburbia”) to complete the minor.
