Vision

" In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God."

--John 1:1

    In an age of distraction, short attention spans, and information overload, we seek to cultivate the art of deep reading and reflection. These skills are counter-cultural but of great value for the human soul, especially for those whose faith is rooted in Scripture.

    In keeping with the university mission to develop effective ambassadors for Christ, students will also learn to write and speak effectively, with opportunities to practice in creative, scholarly, and semi-professional settings. This type of language learning works across the disciplines and prepares students to work in many different fields. Our faith calls us to higher levels of engagement in understanding and communicating meaningfully with others.

    We embrace the study of both classical and contemporary texts from around the world. We examine texts as part of culture and culture as part of texts, but we seek to understand all literature and theory in light of Christian belief.
