URSĀ 5010. Urban Sustainability. 6 Units.

This course provides the foundation for the Urban Sustainability Master program by explaining how to view and analyze the City from an ecological perspective, and providing examples of how sustainability can be applied to plans, policies, and projects in both existing and future urban areas. The goal is to present and analyze concepts, theories, and questions that will enable the student to define, practice, advocate for, and think critically about urban sustainability. This course incorporates urban ecosystem science, human/social ecology of urban places, and urban environmental history. In that context, first-semester students will explore and critique applications of sustainable practice.
