Québec City, Canada
Earliest start date
In urban studies, you will take a look at the social issues of the day, study the city in all its dimensions. Whether it is to better understand the territory as a place of habitat, work, and mobility, as a management body or space for individual, collective, and community activities, you will produce knowledge that will guide action on the territory.
Your course in urban studies will allow you to meet experts from both different and complementary backgrounds - geographers, sociologists, economists, demographers, political scientists, and others - and to compare as many approaches and points of view. During your training, you will work with, among others, public or non-profit organizations and municipalities.
Whether you are interested in issues of inclusion and social exclusion, city management, urban environmental issues, social interactions within a given territory, cultural and heritage fact, or citizen issues, you will become a specialist in the analysis of phenomena and urban development.
