How This Course Benefits Students:
Creating a new culture and cultural identity requires adapting to the needs of a growing population and a developing culture. As a growing body of immigrants with varying values, there can be times of challenge and uncertainty. This course helps prepare students to understand how the concept of Manifest destiny was a primary guiding force in the creation and growth of the United States.
Why This Course Is Important:
The development of a new country is usually broader than our own missional concerns. This course is needed to expand our understanding of the complexities of creating a new country and how God has influenced its direction.
