Program Curriculum

The purpose of this program is to provide a solid foundation in biblical studies and arts and sciences.

Introduction to Philosophy

This course is an introduction to the nature, tasks, and skills of philosophy. Students will engage foundational philosophical issues by critically examining readings by classic and contemporary philosophers. This course includes an assessment of the value of philosophy for Christian life and ministry.

Human Diversity

This course provides an analysis of human diversity in the context of North American social structures and intercultural dynamics. We examine how race, gender, age, class, sexual orientation, ethnicity, disability, and religious beliefs shape interpersonal relationships and social development. We explore underlying issues of social justice and oppression within a Reformed worldview perspective, with case studies focusing on the international dimensions of generalist social work practice.

Principles of Speech

This course involves the study of basic principles in introductory public speaking, emphasizing thesis, speaking modes and occasions, organization strategies, and audience considerations. The ethics of speaking will be discussed. Students will practice their speaking, presentation, listening and evaluation skills, and appropriate use of visual aids.

Spiritual Formation

This course introduces the biblical and theological principles of spiritual formation. We devote particular attention to how individuals grow in deeper communion and intimacy with their triune God. Articulating and cultivating a biblically balanced and healthy practice of spirituality for daily living will also receive emphasis.

Advanced Rhetoric

Students in this class will explore social issues to produce research-based academic papers and expand skills, including critical thinking, evaluation of sources, information literacy, and appropriate use of both primary and secondary research. Emphasis will be placed on selecting and using appropriate rhetorical strategies and engagement in worldview analysis of chosen topics.

General Psychology

This course is a survey of psychology as an empirical and behavioral science with a consideration of some of its underlying philosophical presuppositions in light of a Christian worldview. Topics to be surveyed include human development, learning and memory, sensation and perception, basic neuroanatomy, personality, psychopathology, and social psychology.
