ARTES Y DEPORTES

arts

La Facultad de Artes y Deportes busca equipar a hombres y mujeres para que presenten el Evangelio por medio de sus talentos y dones únicos. Integrar verdades bíblicas con expresiones artísticas y atléticas genera un influyente medio  para la proclamación del Evangelio en celebración a través de barreras culturales y generacionales.

En una sociedad cada vez más globalizada, el idioma universal de las artes y los deportes es crucial a la hora de expresar el pensamiento, el carácter y la gloria de Dios a las naciones.

Con cursos que incluyen música, deportes, preparación física, composición de canciones, artes culinarias, dirección de eventos y nutrición, entre otros, la Facultad de Artes y Deportes provee entrenamiento en una variedad de disciplinas. No obstante, este entrenamiento va más allá de los métodos, desafiando a los estudiantes a desarrollar un carácter piadoso, una profunda consciencia social con enfoque en Dios y un entendimiento más a fondo de cómo sus pasiones individuales pueden influenciar el mundo para la gloria de Dios.

The UofN uses two types of credits, FLW (full learning weeks) and LCU (learning component units).

FLW credits are used with traditional residential courses and one of these credits requires a minimum of 50 hours of documented learning activities; these include our normal lectures, small groups, one-on-ones, etc.; and some of these activities are nonformal, in addition to the classroom activities and study assignments.

LCU credits are used for part-time programs like evening courses, intensive seminars, distance learning and other non-residential courses. Each LCU credit requires 25 hours of focused learning activities which can be spread over a period of time.
