Educating the whole student is the goal of all degree programs at SWCU. Students can select from several different academic programs as they pursue a bachelor degree. Each program extends the strong foundation that every student receives in their general education and religious literacy coursework. This three-fold, Christ-centered curriculum provides the whole education necessary for each graduate to excel in their future lives and careers.
All of SWCU's baccalaureate programs provide adequate foundation for graduate work. The Associate of Arts program supplies the general education core for a baccalaureate degree of the student's choice.
The programs of study leading to the A.A., B.S., B.A., and the B.B.A. degrees build upon a common core of general education courses. The ability to understand human behavior, to evaluate the thinking of others, and to communicate one’s own thoughts clearly is essential for competence in Christian ministry. Thus, the general education courses required in each of the programs broaden the student’s scope of inquiry into the knowledge of humanity and the world.
