Social Life in Global Cities

Study Abroad London

This program connects students to two key global cities, London and Paris. Students visit key city sites (museums, memorials, and street markets), and contrast the urban social life of these cities: use of sidewalks, use of public transportation, consumption patterns, and security practices. Attention is given to each city’s important ‘third places’, changing social geography, urban restructuring, and contemporary cultural manifestations. Students also engage in research projects incorporating introductory field research.
