We stand at the intersectional heart of our mission as both a college of the church and as a liberal-arts institution.
The Department of Religion, Ethics & Philosophy provides students with the tools to establish their basic perspectives on life as well as the moral compass to navigate it. Through a rigorous curriculum, students gain a deeper understanding of the world around them and learn in an environment that nurtures faith, respects difference, and encourages growth. By encountering the great thinkers and doers of history, our Religion, Ethics and Philosophy students develop unmatched problem-solving and communication skills, which are essential for any job down the road, including a possible life of ministry.
Students have the opportunity for faith formation and to build a solid foundation for a life in ministry, even if that ministry takes place outside of the context of the church.Learn More
