We are no longer accepting applications for 2017.
Spring Break: March 10 - March 19, 2017
Much has been said, and written, about the increasing urbanization of the planet. The implications of this global phenomenon affect us all. Massive demographic shift from the countryside to urban centers, the challenge of feeding and housing the new urban population, increasing urban insecurity, the emergence of new, larger global cities, harnessing the economic engine of the growing city, income inequality and the potential catastrophic effects of climate change lie at the heart of the global urban planning agenda. This newly revised course will address these and other critical topics through the lens of the immigrant in the city, with a comparative case study of Detroit and cities in Germany, looking in detail at the Ruhr and Berlin.
