Reflecting the multi-disciplinary nature of the urban resilience field, we encourage our students to likewise gain multi-disciplinary experience and training. Leveraging the strength of the Urban Resilience Initiative faculty, as well as the many other faculty at Stanford, we support students to gain (1) in-depth expertise in a discipline relevant to the urban resilience field (earth-sciences, engineering, statistics, etc), (2) breadth of knowledge covering a multi-disciplinary curricula, (3) research experience aimed at pushing the boundary of current knowledge, and answering to real-world needs identified by our partners.

We are currently in the process of forming a specific curricula. In the mean time, we encourage any interested student to contact one of our faculty for guidance on courses. You will find below a non-exhaustive list of courses currently offered which would likely be of interest.
