Tulane Home


All classes are suspended for the week of March 16. Starting the week of March 23, all classes will resume entirely online. Tulane School of Architecture (TuSA) remains open with most faculty and staff working remotely. Students can be granted access to work in the building only with prior approval from the school. At this time, we are not hosting admissions tours.

Please continue to check your Tulane email, Canvas, the TuSA COVID-19 FAQ, and the Tulane Emergency Management page for updates.

Tulane is working with students who have difficult personal circumstances that would make leaving campus a challenge or will face complications in online learning once they return home. In response, we have set up the Tulane Student Emergency Aid and Assistance Fund to address current student needs.

Applied Urban Economics
Semesters Offered: 
4-Letter Course Group: 
Course Number: 

This class will focus on applied urban economics, particularly how private and public investment decisions take place within the opportunities and constraints of real estate markets.

Through readings, lectures, site visits, class discussions and professional exercises/assignments, the class will operate at the intersection of the economics of site-specific transactions (real estate development) with the economics of city-regions (economic development). In doing so, this course will situate the study urban economics in a broader ‘citymaking’ context which looks comprehensively at processes that underlie the growth, decline and regeneration of cities such as economic development, real estate development, planning, design, and public policy.

The class will use New Orleans and Los Angeles as primary ‘urban laboratories’, but will also include in-depth investigations of applied urban economic issues in other U.S. cities to provide students with comparative examples and a range of economic conditions.
