Through a consistent, integrated and rigorous program of study, the Liberal Arts program enables students to discover the intellectual legacy of modern civilization and acquire a solid foundation of knowledge and skills preparing them for university studies. In order to meet these goals, this particular program of study focuses around the development of thought and learning. This core concept is reinforced through the topics and issues integrated within the program—topics and issued that have been reflected upon by different thinkers throughout human history. Humanity’s attempts at understanding God, man, history and institutions, nature and the universe through disciplinary study constitute the focal point of this program.
The basic methods used to help students meet the program objectives are reading and the critical analysis of thinkers, scholars, artists and important authors in a variety of disciplines whose work has helped develop human understanding and civilization.
Through an integrated project addressing a specific question or issue, students will establish connections between the perspectives and methodologies of various disciplines and achieve a synthesis focused on the unity of knowledge and the human condition. In addition to this, a specific course aimed at helping students understand the underlying themes that are common to various courses will be given once a year.
Students who complete this program meet the admission requirements for university programs in Social Science, Humanities, Communications, Administration and the Arts. This program is not intended for those who wish to pursue university studies in health or pure and applied science.
