Arts & Sciences Department


Using the Liberal Arts to Fulfill the Mission of Lancaster Bible College

Jesus declares that we are to love God with all our mind. Therefore, the Arts & Sciences Department is dedicated to equipping students with broad cultural knowledge and practical principles for living out Christ’s teaching through a strong liberal arts curriculum. Courses emphasize four themes: developing discernment, cultivating creativity, analyzing the evolution of diverse worldviews and critically investigating God’s creation. These themes presuppose that students, as God’s image bearers, are pursuing more than a career. We believe students must be educated holistically, preparing them to follow God’s call to be a redemptive presence in the world.

Academic Programs

The Arts & Sciences Department offers students flexible career options for obtaining an associate or bachelor’s degree through the traditional on-campus college experience or online through our Adult Education program. Through these program, the department also seeks to help students understand how the theories and trends within various disciplines influence worldviews on many levels. Before graduating, students take a capstone course that encourages them to put their knowledge into action by interacting with various communities that lie beyond the classroom.
