How have students sensed God leading them to use their Urban Studies degree?

"With my Urban Studies degree I hope to better serve the neighborhood that I am ministering in.  I hope to do this by better understanding the issues affecting the neighborhood in everyday life.  By God’s grace I also hope to be a better steward of what God has given me for the ministry He has prepared me for." ~ Mike
