University of the Cumberlands

Williamsburg, KY

University of the Cumberlands says, 'The University's mission to offer 'a broad-based liberal arts program enriched with Christian values' is evidenced in our General Education curriculum. Along with the University's other programs, this curriculum attempts to foster in students 'a heightened awareness and sensitivity to the search for truth and a deepened responsibility toward humankind.' Collectively, the courses taken to fulfill the requirements of the six sections of the General Education curriculum are intended to provide a breadth of information, an understanding of critical concepts, and a mastery of skills to support a life-long pursuit not only of professional achievement but also of 'responsible service and leadership.' These endeavors are rooted in an open exchange of ideas within and among academic disciplines and are framed by a Christian sense of responsibility toward self, toward society, and toward God.'
