Hometown: Los Angeles, CA

Why I'm majoring in Urban Studies: Urban Studies combines my interests in urban sociology, urban planning, real estate development, and sustainable design. I felt that it was the perfect major to learn about and actively work on addressing real-world issues.

What I like best about Urban Studies: The interdisciplinary, flexible nature of the program that ensures I can pursue coursework and projects in fields I'm actually interested in while gaining industry skills and academic experience. The small major size also allows for the creation of a strong community of peers and helpful advisors.

Favorite class/professor: The Urban Economy - it opened my eyes to the interdisciplinary nature of urban studies and how people are the driving force of urban development.

Career goal/future plans: Urban Planning or Real Estate Development
