March 8, 2021

Booth University College has announced the launch of its new Bachelor of Arts in Community and Urban Transformation (CUT). The four-year interdisciplinary program will examine topics of planning and community development while focusing on “understanding and transforming the urban experiences of the disadvantaged.” Dr Aaron Klassen, Assistant Professor of Sociology and the CUT program’s designer, explains what makes the program unique: “Not only will we be encouraging students to study and experience cities, to understand issues like poverty and health, we want them to be able to contribute some kind of positive change.” Booth UC (MB)
