2018-19 Undergraduate Academic Catalog | Introduction to Roberts Wesleyan College

Our Educational Philosophy

Roberts Wesleyan College serves traditional and non-traditional students at the undergraduate and graduate levels. The College’s educational philosophy is built on the assumption that education must address the whole person as a physical, psychological, social, rational, and spiritual being. An education at Roberts Wesleyan College presupposes both the complexity of the world and the diversity of human nature. No one method of inquiry or verification is regarded as the sole route to knowledge, nor does one set of skills provide sufficiently for a life of service. A Roberts Wesleyan education is one in which students investigate the aesthetic, historic, philosophic, scientific, and professional disciplines. Academic pursuit is strengthened by the College’s historic Christian concern for the communication of human values and the development of the whole person. Through membership in a community of learners, students are encouraged to cultivate the knowledge, skills, and attitudes that will prepare them to be thoughtful, spiritually mature, service-oriented persons who will have a transforming impact on society.
