Global Urban Studies Program

The Global Urban Studies Program (GUSP) serves as a research center for faculty and students to address dynamics and problems in cities across the world, with emphasis on facilitating urban areas to learn from each other.

Research projects associated with GUSP cover a range of topics addressing urban policy issues and governance, the effects of globalization on urban areas, and urban issues in comparative perspective.

Scholars in the program also look at the urban impacts of global trends, such as changing manufacturing structures, immigration patterns, and population gain and loss.

The program also includes a graduate specialization that can be taken in combination with any other graduate degree program in any disciplinary field such as economics, political science, sociology, or geography.
