California Studies Colleagues: If you were inspired by the interdisciplinary approach of our California on Fire conference in April, please share this announcement with those who may be interested in a similar approach to learning and understanding the challenges facing California.
From CSA Chair Rachel Brahinsky comes this announcement about the Graduate Program in Urban Affairs at her university:
Greetings: We have room for just a few more fantastic students to join the Fall 2014 cohort of our MA program in Urban Affairs at the University of San Francisco. I’m writing to encourage you to share this email with aspiring urbanists who may be interested in diving in for further studies, now or in the future.
This is an interdisciplinary two-year program, with a strong emphasis on community-based research in the San Francisco Bay Area. The program combines rigorous academics with an internship and applied research. Community-engaged projects will contribute to and benefit from the vibrancy of the San Francisco Bay Area, while encouraging students to reflect on their role as global urban citizens.
Please follow this link to our website for more information. And please encourage students to write me with any questions they may have (rbrahinsky (at) usfca.edu.
We will continue to review applications on a rolling basis until the cohort is full. Thanks so much for spreading the word!
