Introducing Our New Community and Urban Studies Degree

Urban Studies is a vibrant and growing area of study in many
universities. And Booth UC is excited to announce that we will soon be launching a four-year interdisciplinary Bachelor of Arts degree in Community and Urban Transformation Studies…with a unique focus.

“We are emphasizing a transformational approach,”
explains Dr. Aaron Klassen, Assistant Professor of Sociology. “Not only will we be encouraging students to study and experience cities, to understand issues like poverty and health, we want them to be able to contribute some kind of change.”

Courses such as the Social Life of Cities, the Indigenous Experience in Winnipeg’s Inner City, and Perspectives on Theology of Social Justice will cover a myriad of topics. There will also be applied options that will allow students to work in the field in various communities of Winnipeg.

“Being located in the heart of downtown Winnipeg gives Booth UC a particular advantage for an Urban Studies program,” says Dr. Michael Boyce, VP Academic and Dean. “If your starting point is a complex inner-city neighbourhood as diverse as ours, you can’t help but learn from such a dynamic environment.”

If you would like to learn more about how to apply for the Community and Urban Transformation Studies program, please contact our Admissions department.
