When is NY Urban Research offered?
New York as one of the world’s great mega-cities is a strategic center of commerce, communication, media, transportation, politics, the arts, and religion exerts an inordinate influence across vast regions and the fate of nations. New York is also a stew pot of cultures retaining much of their original ethnic contributions while flavoring others in the interchange of ideas and worldviews. To gain a better understanding of the needs, the complexity, and the opportunities that urban centers offer, effective engagement with the city requires practiced skills in conducting primary research in both its qualitative and quantitative forms as well as familiarity with gathering and analyzing data gathered by the government and public and private sectors. This course seeks to build proficiency in research skills as well as explore major urban theories and ministry models for the purpose of generating an informed response from a Christian worldview.
