Prerequisite: BUSN 110 and Sophomore standing or above.
This interdisciplinary, core curriculum course centers its intellectual and artistic queries around the enduring question, "How do the arts reveal God's love for beauty, empathy and creativity across global boundaries?" Using the framework of the Beatitudes (Matthew 5:3-10), students will explore how global cultures both celebrate and critique their communities through the artistic disciplines of art, music and theatre. Throughout the course, students will cross boundaries of difference to investigate how God?s creative spirit manifests itself in artistic expressions of beauty, dissonance and the celebration of the human spirit.
A survey of the elements and concepts of art theory and practice as reflected in culturally and historically significant painting, sculpture, architecture, and other art forms, from 1450 to the present.
This course introduces students to the professional, personal, and spiritual dimensions of communication. By identifying how to live out one?s faith in interpersonal relationships, through public presentations, and by engaging in mediated communication, students will be encouraged to pursue clarity in communication motivated by the question: how do we better understand others and help them to understand us?
This course will focus on developing a personal and professional brand that expresses uniqueness, passion, and strengths to hiring managers. Navigating professional opportunities with important tools such as resume design, e-presence, networking, behavioral interviewing, and employer search and engagement strategies, along with identifying and creating professional goals will be emphasized. Students will participate in mock interviews with local recruiters. Prerequisite: junior or senior status.
This lab science course introduces the empirical study of the natural world, and explores the ways in which the patterns and processes of creation reveal and reflect the nature of the Creator. Unit 1 introduces students to the scientific process through an investigation of the origins of the universe. Unit 2 includes the physics of energy, its various forms, how we use and produce it, and the impact of our energy consumption habits. Unit 3 is an investigation into genetics, genetic engineering and the diversity of life on Earth. Throughout each unit students will learn and engage in empirical reasoning through laboratory experiments. This course highlights the roles of curiosity and intellectual humility in generating and responding to scientific knowledge. Emphasis is given to critical evaluation of questions at the nexus of science and faith, such as whether science and Christianity are in conflict, how do Christians think about the big bang theory and the theory of evolution, and how we may use scientific knowledge to make choices that honor God and extend His love to others.
Students in this course will learn to think critically about their personal health and wellness in the context of Christian commitment. They will learn scientific principles of aerobic conditioning and weight training. Popular lifetime fitness activities will be introduced. Special emphasis will be placed on developing and maintaining lifestyle habits that optimize well-being.
This course examines the history of the United States and Europe from 1750 to the present day. It critically explores the rise of the ideas of freedom, equality, and justice, while asking what role did the Christian faith, and the courage to express it, have in the formation of the modern and postmodern world?
How do stories redeem the past and shape the future? What stories might make sense of your past and shape your future? ?Faith and Story? introduces students to literature as a method of human inquiry, with particular attention to the importance of carefully reading texts from multiple genres, periods, cultures and voices, examining narrative and form through a Christian lens, and cultivating the virtues of imagination and empathy.
This course will expand students' appreciation for, and abilities in mathematics so that they understand it is present and useful beyond their previous considerations and experiences. As these boundaries are stretched, students will not only connect with the beauty and utility of mathematics but also the opportunity it will afford them to worship and serve God with greater impact. Problem solving, critical thinking and rigorous logical argumentation, implemented both formally and in relevant, faith based applications, will provide a rich soil for the cultivation of knowledge, faith and character. Additionally, various topics in financial mathematics will be covered. From simple and compound interest models to amortized loans, students will calculate and solve for relevant variables, then create spreadsheets to assist them in the empirical problem solving necessary for budgeting and comparative financial applications. The course will conclude by investigating mathematics in design and nature. The Fibonacci series will be used as a platform for these numeric patterns, which will necessitate the ideas of limits and infinite processes, leading into the basic concepts behind differential and integral calculus.
An algebra course designed for students who have a good background in high school algebra and are prepared to cover the major topics of algebra in more depth and breadth. Applications of algebra will be emphasized in this course. This course does not serve as a prerequisite for the calculus sequence. Prerequisite: high school algebra or equivalent.

This course explores a variety of influences which shape many of the characteristics of personhood, focusing on critical consideration of the interplay of factors and the complexity of being human. Students will be encouraged to apply the biological, psychological, social, and spiritual lenses of psychology to understand themselves and others, including how and why self-regulation is a key factor in successful healthy living.
An introduction to the study of society, including the study of the shared relationships that create social organization and social processes of society. Required for sociology minors and for admission into the social work major.
A comparative study of world societies and their ways of life.
An integrated introductory study of Spanish. Listening, speaking, reading, and writing are all integral to learning the language. Cultural aspects of Spain and Latin America are also presented as essential components. Three class sessions and one laboratory per week. Prerequisite: placement exam required.
In this course, we wrestle with a question that the prophet Micah asks and answers in Micah 6:8, "O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God?" This question is as relevant in America today as it was in Israel in the 8th century BC. How do we live such a life in a time of injustice, hate, and violence? This course addresses this question by exploring the ways in which justice - or injustice - manifests itself in society, both domestically and globally.
This course utilizes the flow of Christian history to explore both the development of Christian doctrine and the context of the spiritual journeys of Christians from around the world. By tracing the history and theological development of Christianity, it reveals the foundations of the Christian faith. In doing so, it gives students both a broader perspective of the whole Christian movement over two thousand years, and helps them understand their own personal faith tradition.
