Major in Classical Liberal Arts

 

Students in the Classical Liberal Arts Major pursue a rigorous interdisciplinary focus in the liberal arts, preparing them for graduate school, seminary, or the work force.  Students are required to take five courses developing an integrated philosophical, historical, literary, and biblical worldview and then may use Major Course Electives to continue to gain broad exposure to the liberal arts disciplines.  To fulfill their apprenticeship credits, students pursue research projects, applied internships or practica.  Students study a classical language.

The CLA major emphasizes teaching, requiring pedagogy classes that discuss the art of education as a lifestyle, not merely a career. This major also gives students the flexibility to hand-select classes, allowing them to develop their own focus in a particular area of study.
