Three interdisciplinary, interactive courses enable you to learn about leadership, public policy, ethics, and contemporary culture from fully qualified professors. You benefit from the insight of guest speakers who are leaders in government and industry. And because your courses are taught from a Christian world view, you discuss how you can integrate your faith into politics, business and communications.
In this course, you will discuss the nature and styles of leadership within Canadian politics and government, both in a historical context and drawing on events as they unfold right on your doorstep. Examine how political parties choose their leaders and how leadership differs in the main political parties, as well as the leadership role played by various institutions in and around government, such as the media, lobbyists, the public service and the Supreme Court. The question of how Christians ought to interact with politics and government is considered throughout the course and as a specific topic in its own right.
This course explores the philosophical basis for and nature of ethical decision-making. Recent and contemporary ethical issues facing leaders in the political, business, and communication fields. Observe firsthand how leaders engage in ethical dilemmas in the Ottawa setting of their discipline.
In this course, you will consider the historical and contemporary debate in Canada on what constitutes culture and our contemporary cultural challenges; how Christians interface with that culture and the role of organized religion; Christian critique of culture and the methodologies and perspectives of various entities that seek to influence culture. Observe firsthand how Canadian culture is formed within the Ottawa setting in their discipline.

Christianity and Culture
"That which distinguishes a semester at the LLC from a 'normal' semester at TWU’s Langley campus is your interaction on a variety of different levels with your peers, your professors and those who you meet through your internship. A morning class about modern Western society would have me working through things intellectually until I would get to work and be confronted with that society on a very practical level. As a Christianity and Culture major, I found the LLC to be a perfect fit."
