Rollback: The course description gives no indication that this is a photography course, nor does it mention how cityscape is represented. In fact, a wide range of types of ‘landscapes’ besides cityscape are referenced in the syllabus description. I recommend re-titling the course “Photography: Natural and Altered Landscapes” and rewriting the course description to make clear reference to the medium and provide a brief summary of the main themes and topics covered.
