“I would much rather hire an executive who has taken courses in history and philosophy and language and art than somebody who has only studied a single element of one subject.”

– Michael Eisner, former CEO of Disney

“The liberal arts education I received at Christendom was so important for me in developing my mind and heart. Even if I’m playing at a secular music venue, the goal in mind is to bring people closer to God. There’s a lot of bad art out there, so I believe it’s important that good people are in art to influence it for the better.”

– Marie Miller ’05, Singer/Songwriter

“My Christendom education helped me to follow a career in music with confidence, and conviction that making Christ the center of my passion will ultimately bring me happiness through its pursuit.  These things have not only helped me to be successful, but also have permeated my music career with tremendous joy.”

– Danny Schneible ’03, Singer/Songwriter & Video Producer

The Power of the Liberal Arts

Through the study of the Catholic liberal arts, you will encounter a universal study of knowledge—through Mathematics, History, Literature, Science, Classics, and Political Science—unified by the central role played by Philosophy and Theology. John Henry Newman noted that this 2000-year time-tested curriculum actually expands the intellect, empowering you to win in the marketplace when competing with graduates of other colleges or universities.
