College is a fantastic time to explore big questions of meaning, purpose, and vocation, to encounter new and challenging ideas, to question the assumptions you were raised with and establish your most important beliefs on your own terms. But does exploring the questions and debates college has to offer mean risking a loss of faith?
It can be difficult to remain a Christian if you develop a college-level understanding of history, biology, or sociology while never moving past a Sunday-school understanding of theology and biblical studies. If you dig deeper into the Christian intellectual tradition, though, you’ll find that it includes thinkers every bit as brilliant, theories just as sophisticated, and answers far more satisfying than any alternative worldview. Through CCS’s courses and community, your theological knowledge and your living faith can keep pace with the rest of your intellectual development, illuminating and enriching your studies in your major.
