URB 600: Classical Approaches to Urban Studies

Professor Attoh’s Course

Check out the digital portfolios from Professor Attoh’s course, Classical Approaches to Urban Studies. This course helped students engage with central themes that define the field of Urban Studies and showcase their learning on their personalized digital portfolios.

We thank participants for their hard work, creativity, and time used to create unique portfolios. We learned a lot from our first course partnership. In this course, students were asked to profile at least two course assignments, a brief biography and resume. Here is a preview of each portfolio, click on the red arrows below.


Evelyn used the RADIATE theme and also rounded her biography image.


Paul used Rowling and gold/ black neutral colors; he also posted about his longtime volunteer work.


Camila used the theme titled, Twenty-Twenty, which is a very clean design.


Marlon, a leader in his community, decided to profile his photography as well as his coaching young people in chess!
