Substantive learning goals include understanding the varying needs and opportunities of "localities" and "communities"; appreciating the role of local government and community-based organizations; and the application of geographic information systems (GIS) to local issues such as transportation, environment, and housing. Course material is drawn from the Bay Area and students undertake a field practicum as part of the course.
