Spiritual Enrichment Track
Each student who signs up for a track will receive a Certificate of Completion when the specific track requirements are met. The goal of the Spiritual Enrichment Track is to give a Biblical view of spirituality and to develop and enrich personal spirituality. This track requires the successful completion of 10 courses. The student takes the 3 required courses of “Christian Spirituality,” “Christian Vocation and Ethics,” and “The Triumph of the 7 Virtues.” The student also chooses 3 or 4 additional courses from the Topical Classes list, 2 from the New Testament Textual Classes list, and 1 or 2 from the Old Testament Textual Classes list below. Each course requires the passing of 3 tests administered by the teacher and the timely submission of a 4 to 6-page paper on a subject or text approved by the teacher. Each student who signs up for a track will have an academic advisor. It is not required that these classes be taken in order. The current semester’s class offerings are found here.
