BHSC 125 - Urban Community


Credit(s): 3-6
3-6 hours lecture, 3-6 hours contact
This seminar introduces students to the social sciences through the study of the urban community. Beginning with their own community experiences, students examine their personal perspectives on community life and combine them with an introduction to the theoretical knowledge of the political, social, economic and cultural aspects of urban problems. Through readings in anthropology, economics, history, sociology and political science, students explore major urban problems such as education, housing, transportation, work, crime, city planning and class and racial conflicts.  A Life Arts Project is required.  

This course is only open to students in the B.A. Liberal Arts and Sciences program.
