School of Arts & Sciences

The School of Arts & Sciences prepares students for advanced graduate study, professional schools, seminary, or a variety of careers involving an understanding of human interaction, creativity, consciousness, and the natural world. The diverse disciplines represented are united by the belief that the great ideas of the ages are rooted in, and animated by, God’s truth. In this sense, the school could well be considered the school of non-vocational Christian ministry. You will be challenged to find your special niche in the Kingdom and pursue that calling with excellence.

Every sphere of life today urgently needs committed, qualified, critical-thinking leaders who are also young, energetic, and excited. The School of Arts & Sciences offers vision, educated strategies, and foundational ministry skills for students sensing a call to organizational leadership, the media, law, medicine, professional counseling, seminary, the academy, or the wider professional world.
