Thedevelopment of Specialized Knowledge is largely the role of the specific major oremphasis, realized through departmental or program level learning outcomes. IntegrativeKnowledge, while not necessarily the lone task of general education, is the primary focusof the general education core. It recognizes the significance of exclusive subjects while atthe same time stressing the imperative of educating students with the tools needed torecognize the interconnectedness of ideas and perspectives. The ultimate goal of this is toequip students with the necessary tools to synthesize what may seem to be disparateelements of knowledge in order to develop informed and effective responses to lifeexperiences.Recognizing that the assumed responsibility of any general education program is toprovide a basic exploration of the collective insights of humanity, the general educationprogram at Central Christian College of Kansas relies on a classical curricular approachrepresented by the Trivium. This system of learning recognizes a scaffolded approach,beginning with the mastery of language and culminating in the pursuit of theologicalreasoning. This structure, which includes a contemporary interpretation of the Quadrivium(Liberal Studies), ensures that the general education core:1.Prepares students with the skills necessary for scholarly reading, investigation, writing,and discourse.2.Provides a common body of knowledge concerning the fundamental academic insightsof the ages.
