Intellectual Perspectives

The Intellectual Perspectives portion of the curriculum is designed to assure that all Westminster College graduates are familiar with a broad range of human intellectual endeavors and creativity. The requirements of this component of Liberal Studies are subject based and provide opportunity for students to explore significant areas of knowledge. The seven principal areas of study are: (1) foreign language; (2) humanity and culture; (3) quantitative reasoning; (4) religious and philosophical thought and tradition; (5) scientific discovery; (6) social thought and tradition; and (7) visual and performing arts. All students are required to complete at least four semester hours in each area. Two courses that satisfy major or minor requirements may also be used to satisfy Intellectual Perspectives. See the Westminster College class schedule, published each semester, for a list of courses which fulfill these requirements.
