“Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ.”

Colossians 3:23-24


In the Department of Humanities, we’re striving to help you understand the creative expressions of human culture, participate in the creative processes of cultural production, and transform culture by turning it toward the love of God and neighbor.

In keeping with the mission of the University, we believe all human intellectual and artistic effort is to be viewed through the lens of the lordship of Jesus Christ. The Humanities Department strives, therefore, to offer courses and programs which give a strong foundation in the theory and practice of the disciplines of English Composition, Literature, Foreign Language, Communication Arts, Visual Arts, and Music, as well as a Christian worldview which affirms the pursuit of truth and the value of self expression through written, visual, and aural disciplines.
