Credits and Academic Requirements


The Philadelphia Urban Seminar will be taken as a three-credit course on your campus. The course may count for program credit in a variety of ways, such as:

  • A free elective
  • EDUC 242 field experience requirement
  • A multicultural experience

To be certain what it will count for, contact the urban coordinators on your campus.
