General Certificate in Urban Studies

Note: For purposes of meeting certificate requirements, all foundations courses will count as six credits.

York University students may earn a General Certificate in Urban Studies in addition to fulfilling the requirements for a bachelor's degree. This certificate is not open to students pursuing a degree in urban studies.

To qualify for the General Certificate in Urban Studies, students must complete 24 credits from a list of approved urban studies courses, and the cumulative grade point average in these 24 credits must be 5.0 (C+) or higher.

Course requirements for the general certificate are as follows:

  • AS/SOSC 2710 9.0 or AS/SOSC 2730 6.0;
  • 18 additional credits from among the courses recognized as satisfying the degree requirements in urban studies, including at least six credits at the 4000 level.
  • an advising appointment with a faculty member teaching in one of the core courses in the Urban Studies Program.

Courses taken to fulfill the requirements for the General Certificate in Urban Studies may not also be used to fulfill requirements for the degree in public policy and administration. For a current list of approved courses, see the urban studies or Social Science Division supplemental calendar. Further information about the General Certificate in Urban Studies is available from the coordinator of the Urban Studies Program, or the coordinator of the Public Policy and Administration Program.
