Greenspun College of Urban Affairs


“Making a Difference” is more than a motto for the Greenspun College of Urban Affairs. It is the focus of all we do. The vibrant, complex environment in the Las Vegas Valley is the laboratory for the Greenspun College. Dedicated to using the knowledge of its disciplines to address the issues and problems in an urban environment, the faculty and students in the Greenspun College strive to make a positive difference in Las Vegas, the region, and the nation. As the College’s faculty advance their disciplines through research and teaching, they share a commitment to fostering the professional development of their students and equipping them to address the myriad of issues that confront individuals as well as organizations in an urban environment.

The college offers a myriad of graduate programs including graduate certificates in Forensic Social Work, Marriage and Family Therapy, Public Management, and Nonprofit Management. It offers Master of Arts in Communication, in Criminal Justice, and in Journalism and Media Studies, the Master of Science in Marriage and Family Therapy and in Environmental Studies, the Master of Social Work (MSW), and the Master of Public Administration (MPA). There are two master level executive programs (a Professional Master of Arts in Criminal Justice, an Executive Master in Crisis and Emergency Management) and two Ph.D. programs one in Environmental Science and another in Public Affairs.. These graduate programs emphasize the application of theory in professional practice to address the issues and problems of urban life. Partnerships among the departments and with the community provide students abundant opportunities to develop professionally under the guidance of expert faculty and skilled practitioners. By bridging the gap between the community and the university, the faculty and students in the college are making a difference in thousands of lives.
