Discover New York

Discover New York (DNY)

This core course encourages students to engage both intellectually and personally with the remarkable city that not only provides the setting for St. John’s University, but is also home to people from all over the world. Faculty members develop DNY courses using their own disciplines as conceptual frameworks for teaching students to think critically, develop information literacy skills, and see New York City through the arts, business, social and political relationships, literature, and media. With the course mandate for Academic Service Learning, students experience the city as home to a diverse population in need.
