Each year, the Boyce Academy features courses that focus on a central theme. This year, students will explore philosophical and historical perspectives on “freedom.”

HS 117 Contested Freedoms in American History

With Matthew J. Hall

Students will explore the various ways in which the ideals of freedom have shaped the American experience through lectures, readings, and discussions. From colonial America to the present day, the class will explore the ways in which freedom has been an often debated ideal, has shaped much of our nation’s history, and continues to inform our contemporary cultural debates.

PH 117 Freedom and the Christian Tradition

with Bryan Baise

Students will investigate how freedom has been debated from the early church to our present context through lectures, readings, and class discussion. The class will focus on three primary areas: Freedom and Theology, Freedom and Politics, and Freedom and Technology. Each section will explore how Christians have engaged with critical issues related to the area.
