Summer in the City is an academic, travel-based study of life and the arts in urban settings.  This 5-week program begins with an on-campus week of introduction to urban studies and travel field study planning, followed by a three week field study in a city chosen by each individual student according to his or her academic aims and financial means.  The final week on campus will be devoted to field study reflection writing and formal student field study presentations.  Field study options include, among others, architecture, the arts, business, city planning, housing, transportation, environmental concerns, and city writing and literature.
