URBAN LIFE (URBS 10100): Introduction to urban studies allowing students to translate personal knowledge and experience of New York City to more theoretical understanding of urbanism. Includes four projects dealing with mapping, immigration, census data analysis, and local development issues.

ART IN THE CITY (ARTH 10N01):  Art in the city is a field-based introduction to the visual arts and architecture of New York City, Field trips to locations such as the Queens Museum, site of the 1939 and 1964-65 World's Fairs, the Studio Museum in Harlem, El Museo del Barrio, and smaller, artist-run spaces or commercial galleries in Manhattan and Brooklyn (as well as to such world-renowned museums as the Modern and the Met), will emphasize the diversity of the city's cultural institutions and its practitioners. Site visits will be supplemented by readings designed to link the institutions to the urban fabric, and to deepen your understanding and appreciation of the art through an investigation of its social, historical, and aesthetic context. Learning to see, to read, to write and to discuss art and its context in the city is a primary objective.
