Ken Myers, PhD, Chair
The Division of Humanities at Southern Wesleyan University offers degree programs in English, Secondary English Education, History, Media Communication, and Secondary Social Studies Education. In addition to courses that are integral to these degree programs, the division also offers a number of courses that are part of the General Education core requirements for students university-wide.
Through its degree-granting programs of study as well as its responsibilities for teaching General Education classes, the Humanities Division is dedicated to the mission of:
- cultivating in our students a big-picture understanding of our culture and our world that includes an awareness of the interrelated nature of the different disciplines that are part of the humanities;
- helping our students to develop a well-informed Christian worldview that enables them to see each of the disciplines from a Christian perspective;
- inculcating in our students the ability to think critically and to communicate effectively, in both written and oral form, in their professional and personal lives; and
- building in our students a standard and a habit of excellence, so that they may maximize their effectiveness in serving God, serving others, and impacting our culture in a positive and transformative manner.
