First-Year Academic Guide

Academic life at Gordon College involves examining the world through the lens of faith. It means studying to gain knowledge, skills and wisdom to better serve the world we are called to love.

…to ask fundamental questions like…

  • What does it mean to be a person?
  • What does it mean to be a person in community with others?
  • What does it mean to be a person in community with others following Jesus?

In your first year at Gordon you'll explore these questions from a variety of perspectives, mainly through core courses.  As you continue at Gordon, you'll be able to go deeper in your subject area, taking along the perspective you've gained from looking at the world through the core curriculum.
