Introduction to Urban Studies

URBN 133
Urban Studies

This course will provide an overview and orientation to the elements that form the complex background of the urban context: people and their relationships, city systems, unique challenges for life, and some successful solutions that have been implemented locally. The course will take an ‘on the ground’ approach, touring diverse areas of the city in order to develop understanding of the unique development and challenges of that area while appreciating that area’s connection to the city system as a whole.
