Ph.D. Minor in Urban Affairs

Students in doctoral programs at Indiana University may choose urban affairs as an outside minor. To do so, the student must secure a faculty advisor from the urban affairs committee in consultation with the academic advisor for urban affairs (the faculty advisor must not be in the studentís major department). The advisor will serve as the representative of the urban affairs committee in all matters relating to the minor. The advisor shall decide on the character of the examination in the minor field, if any, and shall certify that the student has met the requirements of the program when this has been done.

Course Requirements
Twelve (12) credit hours of courses in urban affairs that carry graduate credit, selected from at least two different disciplines outside the studentís major. The choice of courses must be made in consultation with the studentís urban affairs advisor from an approved list; with the consent of the advisor, other appropriate courses may be substituted.

Minimum grade point average of 3.0 (B) required.
