Christian Cultural Heritage
Faulkner was established "for the purpose of teaching the Bible, for teaching men and women to expound the Bible and Gospel to promote their education so that they more efficiently preach the gospel as prescribed by the Holy Bible" (Articles of Incorporation, 1942).
The Bible, Biblical principles and Christian faith are the heart of Faulkner University. The development of Biblical knowledge and an understanding of the cultural heritage of Christianity are infused into all academic courses and programs. The Christian Cultural Heritage is a core Biblical curriculum designed to incorporate these goals.
The curriculum consists of lower and upper level Biblical Studies courses.
The lower level requirements, to be completed by all undergraduate students, consist of:
- the Life of Christ (BI 1211/1311)
- Book of Acts (BI 1214/1314)
- Pentateuch (BI 2202/2302)
- One lower level Biblical Studies elective.
The upper level requirements, to be completed by students pursuing a bachelor's degree, consist of:
- Marriage and Family Relations (BI 3311)
- Christian Cultural Heritage (BI 4311)
- Two upper level Biblical Studies electives.
Through the Christian Cultural Heritage curriculum, Faulkner students will complete a minimum eight courses in Biblical Studies. Students are required to register for a minimum of one Biblical Studies course within every 15 hours attempted. Students are encouraged to enroll in additional Biblical Studies courses to enhance their knowledge and promote spiritual growth.
