Humanities & Science (HMT/SCI 211)
Is it possible for Christians to interact in all spheres of society and to be convinced of what they know about Jesus Christ's way of thinking? After all, what does God think about government, laws, science, beauty, art, history, philosophy? The mission of this school in YWAM (Youth with a Mission) is to training Christians to influence wherever they are, so that they remain in the absolute truth of who God is.
This Core Course of the UofN aims to present, examine, and celebrate God’s truth and work in every area of life, in alignment with Philippians 4:8, an exhortation to meditate on “whatever is true, honorable, just, sacred, lovely and of good report.” It encompasses the humanities and science and technology, looking at the achievements and failures of individuals, societies, and nations, past and present.
The course allots 8 weeks of study to humanities, and 4 weeks to science, though the goal is an integrated approach. Topics include: the history of civilization from ancient times to the present, the meaning of worldview, language and culture, history of science, the practice of science, stewardship principles, appreciating literature and art, world politics and justice issues. This course meets the UofN Core Curriculum requirement for Applied Christian Thinking .
