About GUSP

The Graduate Specialization in Global Urban Studies, administered by the College of Social Science, offers interdisciplinary study integrated with programs offered by disciplinary departments and is available as an elective to students who are enrolled in any graduate degree program at Michigan State University.

The Graduate Specialization in Global Urban Studies addresses political, spatial, cultural and economic processes and issues in urban areas across the United States and the world, as well as the global forces that impact and unite urban areas.

Cutting edge research opportunities compliment extensive course work in these areas.

With the approval of the department and college that administers the student's degree program, the courses that are used to satisfy the specialization may also be used to satisfy the requirements for masters and doctoral degrees.
