The University of Chicago’s Certificate in Urban Science and Sustainable Development recognizes graduate student work addressing one of the most challenging and important issues of our time: Sustainable Urban Development.
The Certificate is awarded in conjunction with existing UChicago graduate degree programs. It establishes the scientific and intellectual underpinnings for a career in this emerging field. The program is built as a cohort experience for graduate students supported by the Mansueto Institute for Urban Innovation. Participants from different backgrounds and with diverse objectives will meet and engage in constructive debate, collaboration and synthesis.
This program is open to all UChicago Master’s or PhD students enrolled in a full-time program who have completed their first year of coursework. The Certificate provides proof of specialization and will be noted on the student’s official transcript at the time of graduating from their degree program.
