GEOG 2500 - Planning and the City


Cities are complex networks of transportation, housing, economic activity, social systems, infrastructure systems, natural features, and more. This course describes these networks and provides a broad introduction to cities and to the field of urban planning. Students explore the factors that have shaped the city, those that support the modern metropolis, and ideas that are inspiring the cities of the future. Students also analyze urban systems critically and become more informed consumers of their urban environment. The course draws on examples of innovative city planning in Ohio and throughout the world with a particular emphasis on communities seeking to craft livable and sustainable places.
