Description

The Christian Foundations Core is a compulsory study sequence that affords students the opportunity to integrate the perspectives and skills they are developing from their chosen disciplines of study with the Christian faith. Through explorations in Christian spirituality, theology and biblical study students can develop a worldview that connects personal faith with their vocational direction, social engagement and personal development. Alongside the majors and minors of the Bachelor of Arts, it encourages students to become reflective practitioners who can identify, interact, and critically integrate the worldview and value positions implicit in these various disciplines.

In order to maximise the effect of integrating the study of the Christian Foundations Core with the study of other major and minors, students are strongly encouraged to complete at least 18 cp in their equivalent first year of study, 9 cp in their second and 9 cp in their third.
