Each year, the Boyce Academy features courses that focus on a central theme. This year, students will explore philosophical, historical, and literary perspectives on “beauty.”

EN 116 Conceptions of Beauty in Western Literature

with Tyler Flatt

Students will explore the various ways in which ideal notions of poetic beauty have evolved throughout the Western literary tradition, from medieval times to the 21st century. Together we will ask: how is the challenge of conjuring beauty through the written word different from the pursuit of beauty in other media (fine art, music, etc.)? Through lectures, readings, and discussions, students will investigate the changing forms, themes, and conventions of beauty in Western literature.

PH 116 Beauty and the Christian Tradition

with Bryan Baise

Students will investigate the nature of beauty, how it has been debated from the early church to our present context, and contemporary applications to worldview and culture. The course will focus on three primary areas: Beauty and God, Beauty and Creation, Beauty and Culture. Each section will explore how to study and defend beauty from a Christian worldview.
