In this “flipped-classroom” approach, students learn from the award-winning Old Western Culture video-centric curriculum, and then meet for live discussion each week with Scott Postma, their instructor. As an integrated humanities curriculum, Old Western Culture explores history, theology, philosophy, poetry, and art through the greatest works of influential literature of the Western world, and from a Christian perspective.Get Started
