Premier museums, theaters, and concert venues; beautiful outdoor performance spaces; and a robust public art and literary scene make San Francisco one of the most culturally vibrant cities in the world. This course takes advantage of Pacific's three-city campus to explore how the arts both reflect and contribute to the identity, history, diversity, and economics of San Francisco. Students interested in arts, administration, business, city planning, public relations, and urban geography will participate in an interdisciplinary investigation of the city as a site of civic engagement.

The San Francisco Bay Area is a major birthplace of modern technology. This course explores the contributions of a number of different significant industries, including computer technology, telecommunications, social media, and healthcare.  We will use traditional in-class discussions, invited guest speakers, and field trips as tools to better understand this exciting sector of the bay area.  We will also discuss the current interdisciplinary climate of the technology industry and explore how students from a variety of majors can position themselves for careers in these areas.
