SOC-200: Urban Sociology

3 credit hours
This course gives the student an opportunity to integrate a sociological frame-of-reference with an analysis of urban area problems. Issues are examined not only from the viewpoint of the sociologist but from other disciplines and perspectives. A broad spectrum of what is occurring in a rapidly urbanizing world is presented, especially as related to neighborhoods, communities, cities, suburbs, and social issues. This course can be used to satisfy University Studies requirements.
