Population growth and increased movement of people from rural to urban areas can have a wide range of impacts. In this class, students will discover how high levels of migration to cities leads to overcrowding. Then they will examine how richer (HIC) cities deal with overcrowding. The class will begin to explain how other cities might deal with overcrowding in the coming future.
