Welcome to Bronx Beautiful!

Bronx Beautiful is one of several liberal arts capstone courses at Eugenio María de Hostos Community College. Enrollment is limited to 20 students who have completed 42 credits or more. 

This section of CAP 200 includes a service learning component, competencies designed to prepare students for additional schooling and/or their career, and a capstone project that emphasizes gathering, interpreting, and using data. 

Use the page links above to navigate through the course. This is an Open Educational Resource (OER) course, so everything you need is available through this course shell. Please consider yourselves co-collaborators in this course. Hostos students bring a great deal of knowledge about the Bronx and this course will harness your knowledge of place and add to it by examining the following major topics:  beauty, art & music, environment & health, education & advocacy, and infrastructure and urban planning. For those of you who are new to the Bronx and/or live in other boroughs, we will embark on this journey as novice explorers.
