Faith Guided Learning™
Faith Guided Learning™ and Our Commitment Directive
At Providence, we are committed to providing our students with a holistic education. And this commitment plays out in every subject and in every classroom.
A college education should strive to apprehend all of life. By understanding foundational questions of our existence, we have great confidence that we can serve God and humanity in the most effective way by making the ultimate questions the first ones we ask.
The Providence core curriculum reflects the interconnectedness of knowing God with knowing self and the world. Classes are specifically developed so that students come to know God (Biblical and Theological Studies), self and others (History and Humanities), and the world (Arts and Sciences) better.
The interdisciplinary nature of offering one liberal studies major with multiple concentrations reflects the institution’s commitment that every part of reality is God’s revelation of himself. In Christ, all of creation is held together, maintained, given meaning, and ultimately redeemed.
Our required Avodah program offers students many experiential opportunities for academic credit in the city of Los Angeles and insists on not separating or compartmentalizing work from worship or work from faith.
Our students continue to learn from every aspect of college life. We believe that faith is the motive that drives intellectual pursuits and the formation of the heart depends on the everyday habits of living in a Christian college community, including classroom teaching, chapel, cafeteria and dorm conversations, athletics, and off-campus college activities.
This blending of faith with classroom and experiential learning ultimately reflects our holistic education and the unique commitment we boldly call Faith Guided Learning™.
