LJS 3023 - Policy and Planning (3) F

This course explores important substantive areas of urban policy and planning and current issues and debates.  The course familiarizes students with the overall frameworks and approaches of policy makers and planners. Students will become familiar with the legal, governmental, design, and evidentiary considerations of those who shape our cities through policy and planning.  Students will learn how to connect these processes and frameworks to the lived realities of people, neighborhoods, and larger urban settings. Through the use of focused case studies such as transportation, affordable housing, and community planning, students will learn how these considerations play out in a variety of settings.  This course incorporates case studies from the United States and international settings and includes a required site visit to an urban location outside of Nashville organized by the instructor.

Prerequisites: Introduction to Urban Studies and at least two core Urban Studies courses.
