IDS3213: Introduction to the Metropolis 3
This course will introduce students to the field of urban and metropolitan studies from an interdisciplinary perspective. Students will become familiar with the distinct patterns, processes, and institutions of urban and metropolitan areas as understood by scholars in social sciences, humanities, engineering, education, and health. In addition, by reading central works in the field and interacting with scholars and practitioners working in urban environments, students will examine theoretical and methodological approaches to the metropolis as an object of study and as a site for applied work.
