Program of Study - Humanities
The humanities are the core of a classic liberal arts education, those disciplines that first formed the curriculum of university education. Their subject matter is people — all human thoughts and actions in life, all human experiences and expressions of life. Their methods of studying people, in contrast to the social sciences, are those of history, literature, philosophy, music, and theatre. We stand on the shoulders of all the great thinkers, writers and artists who have shaped human cultures, and are accountable to them, to our contemporaries and to future generations.
The study of the humanities enables students to develop their critical under standings and appreciations of human nature, knowledge, values, interaction, societies, struggles and achievements. This program is designed to equip students with a broad understanding of human life and thought, an awareness of methods, topics and trends in the humanities, and an advanced ability to think analytically, critically and creatively.
All students in degree programs are required to take a minimum of courses in a variety of general arts and sciences so as to enable them to acquire an adequate foundation and context for their chosen area of studies, and to develop a critical appreciation of scholarship in general.
Biblical and Theological Studies establish anchor points for effective Christian thinking, living, and serving in the church and in society. The Humanities, Social Sciences, and Sciences deepen the understanding and heighten the appreciation of human nature, thoughts, cultures, and societies. Music and Theatre foster the musical and dramatic expression of the human spirit, condition, and experience.
