Christian college core curriculum

Core Requirements for Baccalaureate Degrees

Our core liberal arts curriculum provides a strong foundation in a variety of subjects, including the arts, sciences, and the humanities. This interdisciplinary core nurtures academic skills and understanding while acquainting our students with the broad scope of disciplines. In the freshman class "The Christian Mind," our faculty lays the foundation for an integrative worldview and how our faith must inform and direct our study.

"I can’t even begin to count the number of times that subjects I was learning about in a core class poured over into my specialized classes and gave me an extra edge on certain assignments or essays. I’m often assigned something and say to myself “Hey! We talked about that in Cultural Heritage of the West!” Immediately, I know more about that particular subject and also have something to compare and contrast it to, further deepening my understanding of the subject. The fact that I can immediately utilize the knowledge I am gaining from my core classes and use them in my other classes is all the assurance I need to know that the core classes will also influence my post-grad life."

"My core classes show me how to find God’s glory in everything I do. I was especially able to see that through my biology lab. These core classes encourage me to think differently about my business classes and seek the Lord in whatever field I go into."
