Faith Learning Integration at Liberty University

The seamless integration of faith and academics is a critical component of an excellent, well-rounded education from a Biblical Worldview.  The integration of faith and learning entails more than including a Bible verse at the beginning of a lecture, having a devotional, or praying with a class.  While all of these components are important to a Christian classroom, full integration advances this approach to include the critical examination of academic content through the lens of a Christian student.  Faith Learning Integration identifies how God's brilliant design is found across all disciplines and how its identification helps reveal the very nature of God, man, creation, purpose, redemption, salvation, and order.  Faith Learning Integration is a necessary ingredient of a student's search for truth, reason, and morality, as well as the student's academic, social, and spiritual development.
