When you accept the invitation to become a UScholar, you become part of a learning community of self-motivated scholars engaged in thoughtful cross-disciplinary conversation, writing, and action on issues facing the church and the world.
UScholars live, work, and study with a deep and abiding belief that “all truth is God’s truth.”
UScholar Sam Fullhart ’13 says, “The University Scholars program provides students the opportunity to study great works in the Western tradition, to think about what it means to be part of the Western tradition, and to consider how we as Westerners have related — and should relate — to the non-Western world. Many of the courses also provide opportunities for thinking deeply about faith and the relationship between faith and reason.”
As a University Scholar, you will participate in a historically based “great works” sequence of courses that replaces the University Core and Exploratory Curriculum for your general education requirement. As a senior, you will complete an Honors Project that represents advanced work in your major and engages in reflection on faith and learning.
