We have added courses to our Spring officering! The new courses include Basic Economics, and Western History, The Church, and Theology. These courses are added to a list that includes Psychology, Elementary Greek II and Existentialism. Options include dual enrollment for college credit, high school only credit, and adult audit! Please take time to look over these courses and contact me, Dean Walker (919-245-7016) for more information!
General Psychology. Introduction to the general field of psychology. Emphasizes concepts helpful for understanding contemporary psychology and those basic to further study. (Monday 8:30-11:20 am) (Partnering Institution: Bryan College)
Elementary Greek II. God’s precious word is worth treasuring by exploring the nuances of its original language. Studying Greek gives students the same tools that helped build the Reformation, equipping them to begin a new reformation. One year of college level Greek fulfills HS graduation requirements. (Monday 1:00-3:50 pm) (Partnering Institution: Belhaven University)
High School, Adult, Audit:
Basic Economics: A ten week study of economics from a Christian worldview! How does the economy work? What is good about free markets? What is bad about socialism? How do we answer these questions from a Christian worldview? Classes will be on Tuesday evenings and open to students and adults.
Western History, The Church, and Theology. A look at western history through the lens of the church. Special emphasis will be given to theological issues that arise in the church–these will be studied in their historical context. An excellent way to build theological foundations and discern between orthodoxy and heresy. This course can be applied for 1/2 credit in world history, and is open for student and adults (Tuesday 1:00 – 3:00 pm)
Existentialism: The Philosophy of Despair and the Quest for Hope. This course will explore the rise of existential thought and its impact on contemporary culture. The commentary of C. Stephen Evans will serve as our guide as we engage the primary sources: Camus and Sartre; as well as their Christian counterparts Kierkegaard and Dostoevsky. We will follow their quest for meaning and values as they grapple with the philosophical loss of theistic foundations. Classes will be held twice a month on Thursday evenings. A hybrid of video-conferencing (zoom) and in person evening classes will be utilized (full video-conferencing will be available for those unable to attend in person).
