This is a very exciting time at Ohio Valley University and our new Honors program is no exception.
Ohio Valley University’s new Metadisciplinary Honors Studies Program (MDS) is unique and unlike any Honors Program in the United States. It is about far more than a group of courses from different academic disciplines, more than textbooks and tests, and more than collaborative learning exercises.
MDS Honors students learn about all the academic disciplines by taking a challenging Biblical Worldview Curriculum—a curriculum that is alive, lived, and achieved by way of integrating the absolute criterion and standard of the Christian Bible within the liberal arts (humanities), sciences, and professional studies, into a coherent whole.
Being a student in the Metadisciplinary Studies Honors Program is a mark of distinction and it shows potential employers, colleges/universities, and others, that you are the kind of student who goes above and beyond what is expected. University graduate programs most frequently grant scholarships to students with honors degrees with future employers hiring honors students because they can think critically and have a broad-base education.
If you want an in-depth and quality knowledge of the Bible and how it is integrated into all of life—then Ohio Valley University’s MDS Honors Program is the place for you!
There are no limits to what you can accomplish in being a student. Learn with a world-class faculty—and have fun doing it!
I am here to help you achieve your goals. Please do not hesitate to contact me if I can be of assistance.
Dream big to God’s glory!
