World Cities This course introduces students from a variety of disciplines to some of the major cities and urban areas in the developing and developed world, how and why they developed, what makes them unique, what are the physical and non-physical characteristics of them, what it might be like to live there, and what issues they may face in achieving a sustainable future. This course provides a global perspective for students to think about cities, explore the ways that connect/disconnect them, and interpret both differences and similarities between cities around the world.
