LENSES | Arts and Sciences | Methodist College


An Inclusive Arts and Sciences Foundation

The LENSES (Learning Experiences Nurturing Student Enlightenment and Success) program at Methodist College expands a student's single focus on their major to a spectrum of interdisciplinary experiences that enrich student learning and reinforce how different areas of study are connected.

The Liberal Arts & Sciences courses in the LENSES program teach foundational knowledge and skills that students can carry forward to their professional careers:

  • Citizenship
  • Critical thinking
  • Communication
  • Cultural Humility
  • Problem solving

Courses in the LENSES program strengthen the development of students who are better prepared, well-rounded, and poised for success in life.
