About the Liberal Arts Division

What does it mean to be an educated person?

No matter what your major is, every student at Pensacola Christian College benefits from the classes in the liberal arts division. General education courses like speech, English, history, and mathematics will make you a well-rounded individual—articulate and well informed. And since every class is taught from a biblical perspective, you’ll learn to develop a God-centered worldview that touches all areas of life.

Part of education is learning from new perspectives, understanding the world around you, and appreciating many aspects of the human experience. As you strengthen your communication skills, explore topics like literature and history, and practice following precise processes, you’ll develop your critical thinking abilities—learning to creatively approach problems and find solutions. What you learn in your liberal arts classes will equip you with the knowledge and skills to succeed in all of your other coursework.

Discovering new interests and being exposed to a variety of experiences will transform you as a student—and as a person.

A Word from the Chair of Liberal Arts

Discerning, articulate, well read—these qualities should be true of any Christian college student, regardless of his or her major. So whether you envision yourself working in the ICU or on Wall Street, your liberal arts classes will prepare you for success by teaching you to think critically, communicate effectively, and read broadly.

As a student at PCC, you will read Shakespeare and Twain, learn the timeline of Western civilization, and refine your public speaking skills. But more than that, your classes—whether Algebra I or Introduction to Astronomy—will be taught from a biblical worldview by faculty members who are dedicated to excellence and committed to service.

When Jesus came to Earth, He demonstrated growth in various areas. Luke 2:52 describes it this way: “And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man.” What this verse shows is that not only did Jesus grow physically but He also grew intellectually and socially. In like manner, your liberal arts classes will provide you opportunities to develop in many different areas, thus equipping you for success in your major-specific classes and in your future career.
