The Classical Liberal Arts major trains students to shape the culture through academics. The program is designed to help students improve research, writing and speaking skills. Students will address and study the function of the liberal arts as a means of transmitting knowledge in the Western tradition. Students will also gain understanding about the role of the liberal arts in the formation of a Christian worldview. Students should develop a Biblical view of the unity of knowledge across disciplines of the liberal arts. Once finished, students should be able to articulate a thorough integration of faith and learning.
In addition to core courses, students of the Classical Liberal Arts major take a two-course sequence in Biblical Worldview & Pedagogy. They also pursue major electives in a variety of disciplines.
