Columbian College of Arts and Sciences officials started to assess the proposal to implement an urban studies minor last week.
CCAS Dean Paul Wahlbeck said officials will meet with department faculty to talk through “curricular materials and other resources” that might be needed to create the minor, and the CCAS dean’s office and CCAS undergraduate studies committee will review the proposal. Students voted to add an urban studies minor in CCAS through a referendum during the Student Association elections earlier this month.
“We appreciate the feedback of students and faculty to create an urban studies minor,” Wahlbeck said in an email.
He said the review process usually lasts six to eight months.
