General Studies

The General Studies Department provides a broad, theologically enlightened educational foundation for students entering specific professional programs. Students will be prepared for further educational training and/or immediate employment in their field of study. Through the rigors of our disciplines, we prepare our students to influence and transform the world for Jesus Christ through their lives and vocations.
