AP/SOSC3701 3.0 A: Urban Analysis I

Offered by: SOSC


Fall 2019






Calendar Description / Prerequisite / Co-Requisite

The aim of this course is to equip students with the knowledge to conduct research and develop a research proposal. The course introduces students to the practice of urban research, exploring theoretical assumptions, research ethics and methods, both quantitative and qualitative. The course has two segments, both analogous to the phases of the pre-field research process: (1) a discussion of theoretical approaches to urban analysis and how these view the city differently, as well as an exploration of research ethics; (2) an exploration of different research methods. The course includes a compulsory three-day field trip to Buffalo, in which students visit a variety of neighbourhoods and institutions, and meet with other students, teachers, community groups and policy makers. Note: Canadian citizens require a valid passport to enter the US; non-Canadians may require a visa. The cost for this trip is approximately $200. Prerequisite: AP/SOSC 2710 9.00. PRIOR TO FALL 2016: Course credit exclusion: AP/SOSC 3700 6.00.
