While it is common to describe degree requirements in terms of credits
hours earned (e.g., the A.A. degree=64 credits; the B.A.degree=124
credits), we believe that knowledge and the educational process must be
understood as much more than units of “time served.” Our graduates may
accumulate credit hours but, more importantly, they should demonstrate
proficiency in the classical liberal arts, grasp the integrated nature of
knowledge and the created order, and experience personal growth in wisdom
and maturity as Christian scholars and citizens.
In order to determine the appropriate amount of credit hours assigned to
each course, the Dean takes into account the amount of time spent by
students in lecture, in recitation, in labs, in choir practice, on field
trips, etc., and the type of class being evaluated. Generally speaking,
each credit hour corresponds to at least one hour of direct instruction
and a minimum of 2 hours of additional student work each week.
