Classical Education Announced as Major

In response to the growing Christian classical education movement, Belhaven College has introduced the Classical Education major, a degree program for students who seek to serve in classical Christian schools as teachers or administrators, desire a strong foundation in the liberal arts, and seek to learn in an environment that promotes a biblical worldview.

Dr. Dan Fredericks, Senior Vice President and Provost, says that the Classical Education degree at Belhaven, “prepares students to serve in classical schools as teachers or administrators by deepening their understanding of biblical truth for forming and expressing a coherent worldview in rhetorically successful ways.”

Dr. Wynn Kenyon, Professor of Classical Education and Chair of the Philosophy Department and Division of Ministry and Human Services, calls the degree “holistic,” and he says that the program’s goal is to prepare students “to see the significance of worldview thinking, understand the truth in the Christian perspective, grasp the history of ideas, and show the next generation how Christianity is true and practical.”
