The Urban Education Semester (UES) is an interdisciplinary, academic immersion program which introduces students from all academic backgrounds to the complexity of issues facing urban public education.

The program offers supervised fieldwork in a diverse selection of classrooms and educational settings in New York City public school classrooms. The coursework as well as individual and group-oriented advising are offered by faculty at Bank Street College of Education, cited as one of the top three teacher preparation programs in the country. Through a programmatic design that integrates theory and practice, students are encouraged to examine their classroom placement experiences, where they spend three days a week, along side the theoretical frameworks they study in their courses at Bank Street.  There is an abundance of support for the very limited number of students (14) in the program.  Wesleyan students who have participated in this program give it a very high recommendation.
