Philosophy and Goals
The Department of Philosophy and Religion offers introductory and upper-division level courses in philosophy and religion. The department currently offers a minor in the area of Christian Studies designed to provide students with insight into the significant role of religion in the shaping of contemporary culture, with primary emphasis being given to the impact of Christianity on Western culture.
The department also provides academic support for the Christian Education and Leadership Program which seeks to (1) acquaint students with the historical values of Christianity, (2) train them in the exercise of spiritual disciplines designed to integrate faith values with the whole of life, and (3) provide practical training through local, national, and international service-learning projects. Students accepted into the program receive a scholarship which requires the completion of specific program requirements.
Additional information, including an application for admission, may be located at the Christian Education and Leadership Program page.
The Christian Education and Leadership Program is designed to enable students to explore and deepen their faith in Christ, to follow his example of service to those in need, to relate the practice of Christian faith to their career goals, and to lead others to a realization of the “good news” to be found through faith in Christ. As part of the Christian Education and Leadership Program students can prepare to live strong on their journey and enjoying the abundant life which Christ promises.
Program participants are eligible for scholarship awards of up to $3,000 per academic year. To be eligible for scholarships students must, upon being accepted into the program:
