SOCI 375 - Cities and Communities


The characteristics and functions of cities and metropolitan areas have changed as a result of new economic, social, and political realities in the U.S. and the world. This course focuses on the consequences of these changes on urban communities and the people who live in them. Using an assets approach, and using Springfield as our case study, the course explores effective community development strategies that can be used to both evaluate and intervene in various aspects of the “urban crisis.”
