The Honors Curriculum

Whether it is in the classroom, through a service learning project, on a study abroad trip, or participating in a colloquium, Honors College students are dedicated to investigating what it means to be called together to this place as a Christian community of learning that exists for the sake of neighbors, both near and far. Intellectual, formational, and practical, the Honors College is motivated by the commitment to seek creative and faithful ways to participate in the Triune God's reconciling work in the world. Our Honors College curriculum is designed to achieve the following outcomes:

  1. Honors College students will grow in wisdom, exhibited by the ability to give an account of the interconnectedness of creation in its physical, social, and spiritual dimensions.
  2. Honors College students will give an account of their vocation (calling) in light of the Triune God's reconciling work in the world.
  3. Honors College students will develop practical way to seek the good of their local and global communities.

In our courses and seminars, we work intentionally to develop the following foundational competencies, which are essential to achieving our desired outcomes: self-care and self-awareness; leadership within our communities of influence; intercultural competency; peacemaking, conflict resolution, and reconciliation; wonder and imagination; cultural analysis; articulation of faith and ideas.
