This required course invites students to consider the human situation

Humanity in the Universe is the study of the contribution science makes to understanding the true human condition.  The goal is the application of that study to promote an honest positive understanding of what it means to be human and how humans can best relate to each other, their environment and their God.

Scientific understanding of the breadth, depth, connectedness, and organic nature of Creation entices the student to a greater appreciation of the brilliance of the Creator. Science assists theology, philosophy and other logical methods of thought in seeking truth and strengthening faith.  “Humanity in the Universe” therefore seeks to give students a better understanding of the nature of scientific inquiry and the scientific worldview.  We will help them appreciate how methods of scientific discovery, reason, and testing can be applied to real life.
