What kind of classes will you take at Regent? We are committed to promoting a life dedicated to truth, goodness, and beauty – and our curriculum reflects that promise.
At Regent, general education is a shared transformative experience among students that will change you – intellectually and spiritually – and will contribute to your major studies in significant ways. Regent’s general education explores critical aspects of human life: the refinement of the mind and worldview; the development of moral discernment, reason, and courage; and the nurturing of Christian leadership. The curriculum also equips you with foundational knowledge and skills in mathematics, writing, science, economics, and public speaking, so that you will be prepared to humbly and wisely serve others.
Regent’s General Education curriculum is nationally recognized by the American Council of Trustees and Alumni, earning an “A” rating – only one of 23 “A’s” awarded in the United States. This curriculum is dedicated to truth, goodness, and beauty in English Composition, Literature, Economics, U.S. History/Government, Mathematics, and the Natural Sciences.
As part of Regent’s General Education, Regent has three foundational courses:

A Christian Life in Culture
Jesus calls His followers to be salt and light in the world so that people would glorify the Father in heaven (Matthew 5:13–16). To be salt and light in our own day, we must have a deep understanding of biblical truth. To develop Christian leadership skills, Regent offers a unique and compelling program for all on-campus students. The Christianity and Culture minor is designed to help students learn to interpret Scripture and to evaluate the culture, so they can live for God’s Glory. The 15-credit minor is required for all on-campus students who enter the institution with fewer than 60 hours of transfer credit and is comprised of the following courses:
- BIBL 105 Introduction to Bible
- BIBL 106 Christian Doctrine
- GENE 150 The True, the Good & the Beautiful
- HIST 207 Western Civilization I
- HIST 208 Western Civilization II
