    Classical Liberal Arts

    The interdisciplinary classical liberal arts minor from Concordia University, Nebraska offers a traditional and rigorous engagement with premodern languages and cultures. At Concordia, this course of study encourages the classical pursuit of what is good, true and beautiful, considered within the light of Christian revelation. Course options for the classical liberal arts minor include Latin, Greek, philosophy, history, literature and early Christian theology. A minor in classical liberal arts educates students in foundational sources, and it serves as a stepping stone for life-long learning.
