Sociology 255. Living in Cities: Urban Sociology

Cities are the most important form of settlement in the modern world. They are workshops of innovation in technology, culture and manners. Because the city is a settlement and not an institution, the course will encourage students to use methods and concepts derived from several disciplines to understand the city. The course explores the organization, growth and conflicts of a number of the world's major cities.
