Classical Integrated Humanities Courses
Literature and History go together like bacon and eggs, right? TPS offers integrated humanities courses that combine literature and history in a “great books classical” approach. In addition to many omnibus-style courses from elementary to high school, we also offer a two-year high school curriculum that earns 24 college credits. All of these courses can be used in the TPS Diploma program. Here are details.
Two-Year Dual Credit Classical Integrated Humanities Program
Belhaven High Scholars is a Western Civilization humanities curriculum developed by Belhaven University and offered to high school students online through TPS. This classical program integrates western history, literature, composition (writing), and art appreciation into a two-year “Great Books” or “omnibus” curriculum which provides a total of 6 high school credits and 24 college credits. It emphasizes discussion and dialogue over memorization of information, and the efficient integration allows for a lower workload than if similar courses were taken individually. Each year is taught in four live classes per week. Belhaven High Scholars is available to upper high school students with good writing skills — no prior classical humanities background is necessary.
