Faculty teaching in City Seminars are normally adjunct faculty experienced in using the city as a classroom for their teaching. We strive to contract with Christians who have experience in the urban environment and who can expose students to the unique context of investigation in the complex setting of the city. A complete list of faculty and syllabi will be available closer to the program launch date in the fall semester of 2013:
