“PCC’s liberal arts degree is unique in that we value culture, history, philosophy, and practical skills, but from a biblical point of view. Each teacher carefully considers how his or her class will equip each student for a broad range of ministry and career paths.
In my literature class, I want students to see the beauty and importance of classic works and to see that these works are not out of their reach. But more important, I want to model for students how to read everything they encounter. When we, from a biblical worldview, approach ideas about life and relationships that we see in classic literature, we can develop the skill of thinking biblically that I hope will be a part of all of my students’ lives even after college.
There is much pressure nowadays for students to feel that they must know how their future career is going to play out, but this is not often how life works. God can use us in ways that we will never be able to prepare for fully, and that can be a good thing! The liberal arts major can be beneficial for someone who may not have an exact career in mind right away because it covers a broad range of disciplines that will be a great springboard into any career or further education.
However, this major can also be beneficial to a person who has a very specific career in mind that requires knowledge of multiple different areas. For the person who wants to customize and curate a specific educational path—or for students who are still exploring their possibilities—the liberal arts major can be a great choice.
