Purpose

This program aims at providing Christian leaders with a foundational understanding of the world in which they live and serve. The general education curriculum encourages the development of intellectual, social, and cultural maturity expected of college graduates. The program is comprised of the lower division curriculum for LPC’s traditional undergraduate degrees. The goals for this program are the same as those for the General Education Core and are expected to be met at an Associates level.
