Students pursuing this minor at the Abbey explore how Christianity has engaged in intensive dialogue with distinct cultures—sometimes cooperative, sometimes combative, always transformative—and thereby become better prepared to bear witness to its continuing potential to do so. Building on the college’s core curriculum, they become increasingly aware of both real historical differences and ecumenical possibilities in Christian thought and practice. They learn to connect the Benedictine heritage on our campus to the world beyond it, sometimes in intensive study abroad experiences.

At the Abbey, students pursuing a minor in Classical Languages study Latin or Greek or both languages through translation and transcription from and into those languages. They will have the opportunity to translate classical authors like Homer, Pliny, and many more. This hands-on approach to languages will challenge and stimulate the student’s interests in classic texts. Furthermore, the minor will “super-charge” the rest of their studies, showing them the deep roots of our liberal-arts curriculum.

In our day, college and university education is associated with specialized preparation for a career – and as lucrative a one as possible, in order to pay off the high cost of education! Most students today, with good reason, are concerned about one thing: “What should I major in? What program of classes will get me the farthest in life?” Here, “the farthest” is usually defined in terms of finance and sometimes also in terms of personal job satisfaction and social belonging. There is nothing wrong with this kind of reasoning – in fact we encourage it at Belmont Abbey College by our goal to have you “succeed professionally, and be a blessing to yourselves and others.” But this is not the whole story: we have other goals as well: to have you “lead lives of integrity and become responsible citizens.” This goal points to areas of life known under the names of ethics, politics, and theology. Are these real subjects that can be taught and learned, or are they strictly matters of individual or family-inherited opinion? There are also the Fine Arts (drama, music, creative writing, etc.): does anybody really need to understand them if he is not trying to be an artist himself? What about mathematics – should they be studied by those who “hate” math? Should English, world literature, or history be forced upon those who “hate” to write papers? Should a young adult be required to learn more about fields that will probably never contribute to his or her future income?

The Middle Ages, the “Benedictine Centuries” as Cardinal Newman called them, represent an important phase in the development of Western Civilization. This era of both continuity with, and change from the Roman past laid the foundations for the emergence of modern Europe. The political, social and economic developments of the period, and the languages, literatures, philosophies and theology of its peoples are thus of considerable importance in our understanding of both the past and the present.

In it, the reader will find detailed information on the various programs offered, full course descriptions, and the regulations that govern academic affairs. There is also a great deal of general information on the college.

F: 704.461.6727

The mission of the Office of Academic Affairs is to support and enhance teaching and learning at Belmont Abbey College, as a distinctly Catholic, Benedictine undergraduate liberal arts institution.

 

We are committed to our mission through the continuous support of our Faculty in their teaching, professional activities, and service to the community, as well as through constant efforts to place and maintain academics at the heart of strategic and budgetary planning of the College.

 

Finally, we recognize and seek to strengthen even further the important role played by the administrative departments that support the academic program, including the Academic Resource Center (ARC), the Center for Continuing & Professional Studies (23+), the Library, the Office of the Registrar, and Career Services & Internships.
