Mrs. Marie Thompson, Chair
The humanities department provides a foundation of a biblical, liberal arts education in English, history, political science, and modern languages. Programs offered by this department equip students to pursue a variety of occupations in fields such as government, journalism, law, business, and education.
All students study the fundamentals of English grammar and composition as the foundation of all their written communication, both in college studies and for life.
Survey courses in classical British and American literature acquaint students with great literary masterpieces, show trends in literature from various philosophies, and lay a foundation for upper-level literature courses.
History presents how God has worked in the affairs of men and how man has conducted himself since the Creation. This fascinating story also shows how to judge events and movements. All students take History of Civilization as a broad survey of all recorded history. Students study individual countries and major historical topics such as the Reformation, U.S. Constitution, nineteenth century Europe, and church history.
The humanities major provides the student with a broad range of foundational courses in the liberal arts. The student may then organize elective courses according to his own personal goals, interests, and needs.
