CORE COURSE

The European Urban Experience: Why Cities Matter
Fall/Spring, 3 Credits 
Cities are both creative and destructive friction machines, full of contradictory tensions, goals, and visions about what constitutes the good life. This course examines the driving forces of this friction within a European context, including social, economic, environmental, technical, cultural, historical, and spatial influences. 
Week-Long Study Tour: Barcelona or Budapest-Vienna 
Core Course Week: Denmark or Northern Germany

For Gustavus Adolphus students: DIS uses US semester credits. Each GAC unit = 4 US semester credits. Thus, most DIS courses, which are worth 3 US semester credits each, are worth 0.75 GAC units. Be sure to discuss the irregular unit totals with your advisors as you select courses.
