The Urban Design and Architecture Studies (UDAS) program at NYU offers an interdisciplinary analytic approach to urban design and architecture within the department of Department of Art History in the College of Arts and Sciences.
The program provides both a broad, humanistic perspective on the physical aspects of the city and pre-professional training for future architects, city planners, public administrators, and writers on urban problems.
