MORE THAN INFORMATION
CreatEd Core is a 18-month, immersive liberal arts associates program founded on the biblical narrative.
THE CREATED CORE
What is Truth? What is beauty? What is society? Who is God? What does it mean to be fully human? Who am I? These are the questions students wrestle with, and find answers to, in the CreatEd Core.
Our 18-month, discussion-based program inspires students through an engaging study of the Great Books built upon the biblical narrative. We pair history’s most creative, insightful thinkers with the Truth of God’s Story. Rather than offering dozens of unrelated courses, the intentional sequenced curriculum of the CreatEd Core brings meaning to learning, igniting a passion in our students as they make connections between themselves, God’s Word, and His world.
HOW WE LEARN:
What is Truth?
It is important to know how to think, not just what to think. That's why our program begins with an overview of critical thinking and logic. We then dive into theology and philosophy, setting up a foundation for the rest of the program.
The universe doesn’t just exist in theory. In the second semester we explore the history and philosophy of mathematics, physical science, and biology, setting the stage for our exploration of humanity and our place in the world.
What is Man?
How do we fit into the world in which we live? In the third semester, we look at the human self in anthropology, the self-in-society in sociology, and human political organization in political theory.
What is Value?
In the fourth semester, we examine questions of value and re-creation through economics, literature, and the fine arts, where students travel & study in Italy.
