GEOG 104G Cities and Urbanism
GEOG 104G | Open | Semester Two 2023 | City Campus | 15 points
What makes a great city? This course explores 'urbanism' in both historical and contemporary cities to determine the essence of urbanity and the way that citizens (and visitors) experience city life. The dynamics and character of cities are considered in terms of their built environment, environmental systems, population, social diversity, and planning policies and practices.
By the end of this course, students will be able to:
- Demonstrate an introductory understanding of the breadth and depth of urban geography.
- Evaluate critically, theoretical urban ideas using place-based case studies.
- Critique and resolve complex urban problems.
- Investigate proactively and synthesise independently-led observations in Auckland.
- Work to organise, negotiate and present urban ideas.
- Engage with social and environmental sustainable policies and practices locally and globally.
