In the School of Humanities we seek to deepen the communication arts of reading, writing and speaking, inquiry and reflection, discussion and debate, and proficiency in using the mass media.  We believe that these “arts” or creative capabilities have purpose in a Christ-centered life, and so we engage faithfully in our teaching, mentoring, research, writing, and service.  We do these things confidently, knowing that our faithful engagement in our studies echoes the historic Christian tradition of believers seeking greater understanding and wisdom that in turn informs and strengthens the faith we have received.
