The housing studies program allows students to study shelter in its multiple dimensions. Coursework in the program includes social and behavioral sciences, economics, public policy, planning, and technology. After first acquiring a broad background of housing courses, students select one of five areas of concentration: community development and policy, housing technology, management and finance, selected populations, or sustainability. The housing studies program provides the academic background and professional preparation needed for graduate studies leading to college teaching, research, or planning/administrative positions. Depending upon prior coursework, the housing studies major requirements can often be completed in two years. Students are encouraged to meet with an adviser to discuss their specific situations.
