SOC 321/3045 - The Urban Experience (3 cr.)

Three hours of Social Sciences.

This course will explore a variety of approaches for the study of life in cities, providing students with tools to think critically about the meaning of urban life in the new century.  Are cities the vibrant, vital centers of all that is exciting, new and provocative in modern life or are they the decaying, decadent and dangerous remnants of an industrial age whose time has passed? How do we link the lives of corporate elites and pop icons with crack dealers and shanty town dwellers?  How do we place migration, world capital flows, transnational media, and global consumption in our studies of city life?
