Disciplinary programs at Kernel University are structured to lay the foundation for students to acquire the ability to be critical and creative independent thinkers, decision makers and leaders who know how to use structured rationality and scientific paradigms to make difficult decisions of choice, among competing alternatives involving people, resources, values and social responsibility.
Kernel University graduates not only receive excellent life-long preparation for a variety of careers, but also are encouraged to develop the rational discrimination, aesthetic appreciation, compassion, and understanding that only knowledge can foster. Equally important, students learn to understand and evaluate the sources and methods from which knowledge drives. In this way they come to appreciate the contingency of all knowledge and to realize that education is a life-long process.
The academic focus of the university’s curricula is based on the following principles:
Student Centered Education: Curricula are designed to enhance the student’s ability to learn.
Collaborative Learning: Curricula are designed to encourage collaboration ¾ among students, among faculty, and between faculty and students.
Active Learning: Curricula are designed so that students can take an active part in the learning process by ongoing interaction with faculty and other students.
Bridging Theory and Practice: Curricula are designed to teach students how to apply what they learn to real-world professional situations in the fields of Theological Studies.
