The educational experience at Peace goes beyond the classroom. Classes incorporate pre-professional and liberal arts components and each major is unique because the programs offer flexible pairings and specialized concentrations within each major.
The school’s new core curriculum stresses the basic knowledge needed beyond graduation. Mandatory courses in personal finance management, media literacy, and four years of writing courses within the English department make for a more successful student.
WPU also requires a series of three classes focusing on career and professional development. Within this Professional Development Series, students will learn how to construct a resumé, build a portfolio, interview for a job or apply for graduate school.
One of the university’s graduation requirements is that students complete an internship related to their major. It combines educational theory with the real world job experience. More than 60 percent of WPU graduates report their college internships result in job offers. A student’s knowledge can also be expanded through a study abroad program related to their major where they complete both academic and community service activities.
