The City

SOCI 4013: The City

This course examines the social role of cities. The majority of the world’s population now lives in cities, but what is a city and what are its roles?

 

Students graduating in today's global economy need to be prepared to live in, or at the very least work with people living in, city environments. 

 

Students will learn to ask and seek to answer: How do we best understand the growing phenomenon of urbanization? What social impacts do cities have? What social problems result in cities? What social benefits do cities have, and how can cities be resilient? What is a creative city, and how can cities attract innovative talent for the new, global economy?
