Urban life is at the center of the Global Urban Humanities Undergraduate Certificate. For students fascinated with contemporary and historical cities, spatial justice, sustainability, public space, urban design, and the arts, Global Urban Humanities offers a chance to join a vibrant community of scholars and practitioners. Architecture, art history, anthropology, literature, music, history, performance studies and rhetoric are just some of the disciplines we bring together to better understand complex global cities. 

The Undergraduate Certificate in Global Urban Humanities (GUH) requires just three courses and is a gateway to city-related courses in the Division of Arts & Humanities, the College of Environmental Design (CED), and other divisions. Students pursuing the certificate have a chance to participate in the unique GUH Interdisciplinary Research Studio course, which includes fieldwork in a Bay Area city and the chance to experiment with methods that may include mapping, ethnography, and performance.

The info session from 2 to 3 pm will provide attendees with more information on how to apply, course options, and more details on the benefits of participating. We will also be available to answer questions from 1 to 2 pm and from 3-5 pm.
