The Diploma in Humanities program is designed primarily for the high school graduate desiring a year of study in the Classics in a distinctively Christian community as preparation for further study. The Diploma is also suitable for non-traditional students who desire formal study in the foundations of Western Culture for apologetic purposes, civic engagement, continuing education, or leadership development.
Courses in the Diploma program are designed to match “General Education” course requirements in most traditional baccalaureate programs. All courses in the Program may be applied to the baccalaureate programs at John Witherspoon College.

Students in the Diploma in Humanities program must complete a Basileia (“Kingdom”) Mission (non-credit) for graduation. Such projects might include mission trips, regular involvement in an approved ministry, internships, or participation in special evangelistic outreach efforts. Guidelines for completing the Basileia Mission requirement are available from the Registrar’s Office.

Program Objectives
The purpose of the Diploma in Humanities program is achieved by enabling students to:
1. Understand and critically engage the Western tradition from ancient to modern times in terms of its major ideas, images, stories, political movements, and artistic achievements;
2. Trace the unfolding of God’s redemptive plan throughout history.
3. Employ in their own lives a strong grasp of classical Christian theology and worldview;
4. Form their minds, bodies, and tastes to love what is true, good, and beautiful in music, art, and athletics;
5. Discern the broader picture in different contexts of life in order to shape a goal-driven vision.
