CORE 401 Capstone Sem: Integrated Studies

This course is the senior capstone for a Greenville College liberal arts education. It is designed to help students understand the integrative nature of that education. It brings together students and faculty in a collaborative experience that integrates multiple disciplines, values with learning, and theory with practice. Course objectives are accomplished through a focus on a real world issue within the framework of a Biblical worldview. COR 401 builds on students' exposure to both the introductory general education courses and advanced courses within their specific disciplines. The course goes beyond both to lead students into advanced integrative studies. The course, therefore, attempts to help students understand how both breadth and depth of education are means to real integration and holistic truth. Students work in small groups to produce a collaborative studies thesis/project, in order to accomplish the course objectives. Prerequisites: COR 302, and Senior status. (Offered every semester and Interterm.)
