The Core

The Core curriculum, required for all degree programs, is highly integrated, reflecting a holistic approach. The Core curriculum proceeds in a coherent sequenced manner with four larger courses using a common methodology. Students also enroll in Introduction to Personal and Spiritual Formation, a series of courses designed to provide a theological, historical, and practical introduction to the resources and disciplines of formative Christian spirituality. These classes include exposure to classical sources, participation in a faith-sharing practicum, chapel programs, seminary retreats, and an individual formative assessment process.
