About Urban Studies at University of Sheffield

Are you interested in cities and how they are developed? Do you like to think creatively about how urban spaces might work better for people? Are you concerned about social problems in cities and how we tackle the injustices that come with city life?

Our BA Urban Studies programme is a three year honours degree that gives you the opportunity to study the urban and built environment using cutting-edge theories and practices in politics, economics, design, sociology and geography. You'll develop a deep critical awareness of how cities work - and when they don't - and how the fortunes of city dwellers around the world can depend on the actions of global financiers, national politicians, and community activists.

We teach you key analytical and practical skills to prepare you for the workplace. We also allow you to specialise in the aspects of the subject that most interest you.

We also offer the flexibility to transfer between BA Urban Studies and MPlan Urban Studies and Planning, a year or more into your studies.

You can also spend part of your course in another country such as the USA, Denmark, France or Italy.
