    STUDY YOUR TAIL OFF!!!! The exams (3 of them) will determine on how much you know about the material and the course itself.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This Urban Studies course gave a lot of detail about how cities develop and work. We also read a book about Detroit (Driving Detroit) that gave information on Detroit that I probably would have never known. Alongside with teaching us course material Professor Horner, gave us life advice to help us further ourselves in the future.

    Course highlights:

    Highlights of this class was learning about different events that occurred in history that have made impacts on the way cities are. Such events include: GM vs Poletown, 1967 Riots, and also many more.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always go to class, when it comes time to finals it is the best way to remember and retain information than trying to teach yourself.
