The Community and Urban Transformation (CUT) program at Booth University College provides students with the opportunity to analyze the city, urbanization, and the transformational experiences of urban life through a variety of disciplinary lenses in order to promote just, sustainable, and flourishing urban communities.
Community and Urban Transformation (CUT) majors at Booth UC develop a sophisticated grasp of communities and their complex role in cities, and of cities and their role in global affairs through systematic course work. Practical experience forms the focal point of the program as encompassed by the various preparatory seminars; applied practicum, workshop-conference, and educational travel options; and, the capstone integration. The CUT minor complements many other programs of study at Booth UC, and allows students to gain familiarity with urban studies, including practically, minding prerequisites.
