Message from the Dean, Division of General and Health Studies:Barry Schultz, Dean, Division of General and Health Studies, Baptist College of Health Sciences

Believing that everyone needs to know how to make a life, as well as how to make a living, the general and health studies faculty encourages students to cultivate a love for the beautiful, a zest for the intellectual, and an appreciation for the values of others as well as for their own. The faculty approaches these subjects from the standpoint of the college's mission statement: to teach all general and health studies courses within a Christian atmosphere in which all truth is recognized as God's truth, and the faithful search for truth is seen as an act of devotion. In addition to the objectives that all students are equipped to be productive citizens in their churches, communities, and families, general and health studies courses also provide foundational skills that will be essential for success in selected major courses and later in students' careers.
