The URBAN EDUCATION SEMESTER (UES) is an interdisciplinary, academic immersion program that introduces students to the theory and practice of urban public education. UES provides real world experiences in community development, teaching, urban issues and public education and is offered in both fall and spring semesters. UES is one of a handful of domestic-approved programs that Wesleyan students may attend for credit.

The program combines supervised fieldwork in the NYC schools with course work and an advisement seminar at Bank St. College of Education. The program also provides real world experiences in community development.

Come hear Wes graduates of UES tell you how great their UES semester was!!!!!!
