City-As-Text

 Concordia students at a Central Park gazebo

Broadway. Times Square. The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Central Park.

At Concordia, these aren't just New York City sites to visit, but valuable opportunities to learn.

That's because here at Concordia our students engage in city-as-text experiences. New York City and the greater metropolitan area actually become the “text” as students focus their learning activity on one of the vast array of “genres” provided by the Big Apple. Students have opportunities to propose and individualize their experiences. Research, reading, and reflection are elements of each experience, but the primary component is just that—experience.
