Urban Economic Development
Investigate the potential for corporations and governments to embrace the U.S. model of market-led approaches to spur greater economic development in apartheid-created, majority Black townships near Cape Town, South Africa.
Students survey South Africa’s history and urban economic development landscape and explore the similarities and differences between South Africa and the U.S. In addition to classroom learning, students engage in service learning experiences with organizations in low-income communities. By volunteering with these organizations, students, gain first-hand knowledge of corporations and governments can work together to build new economic centers and address the poverty in the townships of South Africa. Students participate in course-related program activities and excursions in and around Cape Town.
