Classical Education Studies

Classical Education Studies (CES)

The Classical College prepares students to serve in classical schools as teachers or administrators. The student continues their rich classical school experience by deepening their understanding of the implications of biblical truth in forming and expressing that truth a coherent worldview. Though the Trivium is not exactly replicable on a college level, this program does emphasize biblical foundations, the goal for accurate understanding, interpreting and expressing biblical truth in a rhetorically successful way, and a commitment to the personal Lordship of Christ in one's life and in the world of ideas.

In addition to the complete Worldview Curriculum or transfer curriculum in the general education requirements, majors will complete the following courses: ENG 470, 473, plus 6 credits of other 300-400 level English; 3 credits credits of either a 300-400 level ENG or HIS course;  PHI 225, 227, 275, 321, 322, 337; 12 credits from ART 360, ART 361, ART 460, ART 461, MUS 325, MUS 380, MUS 381, MUS 392.
