URBN 30100 - Urban Studio

Course Credit: 1.0

This course uses the city of Wooster as a real-world laboratory to provide an applied context for looking at issues related to the design and planning of the city. Based on the teachings of “Contemporary Urban Issues,” “Social Justice and the City,” and “Urban Theory,” using GIS as a complex of spatial tools, students learn how to investigate urban form, read urban spaces and their design elements, analyze the city as a complex system of physical and non-physical factors, review its comprehensive plan, and conduct basic planning and policymaking.
