Trinity Western University

Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences

Perspective

This Faculty is committed to the view that a prerequisite to giving Christian leadership is a clear understanding of the biblical meaning of personhood, knowledge of the cultural, historical, and intellectual bases of society, and an ability to offer a Christian critique of the same. Students are therefore presented with and exposed to influential literature, historical texts and interpretations thereof, leading religious ideas and methodologies, differing geographical regions, and competing philosophical, psychological, and political systems, all in an effort to educate them about culture. They are also taught to think biblically and Christianly in the discipline areas which examine these topics. The professors who teach in this Faculty are thoroughly Christian, well-educated, scholarly, committed to the value of knowledge, and dedicated to fostering the skills of analysis, research, and clear communication.
