School of Biblical Christian Worldview ( HMT/SCI 213 )

The school deals with the cultural developments in our global world and gives insight into the thinking behind current social and political changes. The school will help you to find answers to your questions from a biblical approach. We look at today’s trends and various worldviews and at their historical and philosophical roots. With the Bible as our foundation, we educate Christians to be responsible and well-informed citizens in all spheres of life (family, economy, politics, science, church, media, and the arts). During this course, you learn to see the world through God's eyes and to understand what He wants to do through you in your nation. Learning will be hands-on, as we visit historical and significant places in Switzerland like Geneva, (the City of Reformation and the UN) and Berne (where the Swiss Parliament is located). Additionally, we will visit businesses, churches and the Swiss Alps. You can look forward to learn from significant places of the Reformation, with speakers who are involved in positions of responsibility in different spheres of society. There will be classroom lectures, discussions and projects as well. Both in and out of the classroom, you will be learning from international teachers who are skilled in moving peoples' hearts and challenging their minds.
