The Bachelor of Arts:
During the first two years at Saint Constantine College, students complete their General Education units through our Great Texts core curriculum. Those wishing to continue their study at the upperclassmen level can continue on into one of our two Bachelor of Arts Programs:
Orthodox Christian Studies, which is granted by Saint Constantine College.
English, which is granted by William Jessup University.
In the upperclassmen years, students study great writers, especially Plato, Dante, and Shakespeare, in tremendous depth, and are apprenticed in the research, writing, and dialectic required at the graduate level. A Bachelor of Arts culminates in a Senior Thesis, wherein the student conducts original research and produces a scholarly, article-length essay on a writer of their choice. The Saint Constantine student who completes their course of study has dedicated their undergraduate years to the slow work of forming a humble soul, a virtuous character, and a discerning mind.
Orthodox Christian Studies Track: Students who complete a Bachelor of Arts in Orthodox Christian Studies are equipped to lead and serve in many settings, especially in Orthodox Christian ministry, theological study, and Christian education. The upper division classes in Orthodox Christian Studies include both Great Texts discussions and tutorials, as well as courses in Theology, Orthodox culture, Christian literature, and Biblical and liturgical languages.
William Jessup English Track: Students who complete a degree in English through William Jessup University are equipped to go on to a wide range of careers and/or graduate school in education, literature, law, or the broader humanities. The upper division classes in the WJU English track include both Great Texts discussions and tutorials, as well as courses in English and American literature, literary theory, and contemporary literature.
