Liberal Arts – Membentuk pribadi yang utuh bersama FLA UPH

UPH Faculty of Liberal Arts conducts its academic vocation in transforming the lives of students holistically based on and in the framework of Reformed Worldview so as to enable them to appropriate the substance and live as the faithful citizen of the life of the Kingdom.

OVERVIEW

We want to provide more than knowledge, skills, and job-readiness. We help students to become mature, articulate, reflective, enquiring, worshipful, servant-hearted adults by providing solid foundations in certain key educational areas: theological reflection, critical thinking, linguistic competence, and civic awareness. All of these are aligned to the vision of UPH in providing holistic education that truly transforms students.

VISION

UPH Faculty of Liberal Arts conducts its academic vocation in transforming the lives of students holistically based on and in the framework of Reformed Worldview so as to enable them to appropriate the substance and live as the faithful citizen of the life of the Kingdom.

MISSION

In the wholeheartedly faith on the Biblical teaching of createdness of human being in the image and likeness of God endowed with God-given potential in creation, God-preserved potential because of sin, and God-renewed potential because of grace, Faculty of Liberal Arts conducts its academic vocation as a response to the cultural mandate of God, with definite aim:

  • to enable students to comprehend and appropriate the notion of the unity of truth,
  • to create an educational atmosphere in which students can be nurtured morally and spiritually toward Christ-likeness moral and spiritual formation, and
  • to equip and prepare students with analytical, historical and valuing skills.

WHY FLA?

  • FLA helps me to see things not only within my perspective, but throughout multiple perspective, to help me understand and tackle the problem clearly & more objectively.

Frequently Asked Questions

At UPH, we seek to provide a world-class holistic education. This means that you need broad academic foundations, as well as the development of skills and behaviours that can be applied across different areas of life and employment. We don't want to only supply you with academic information; we want to change your life.

Liberal arts education does have a strong history in the West, but Asian cultures - including Indonesia - also have an important history of general, broad education in both knowledge and character. Our own curriculum includes distinctively Indonesian components, such as the study of Pancasila, Asian literature, Indonesian aesthetics, and other topics.

Yes. Employers in the 21st Century are very eager to find candidates who have transferable "soft" skills in areas such as communication, intercultural competence, critical thinking, and reflective skills. We cover all of these in our Liberal Arts curriculum.

No. We have different streams in our Liberal Arts curriculum for those who identify officially as Christian/Catholic, and for those who identify officially with other religions. In all of our courses, students are encouraged to reflect on how their studies relate to themselves personally, but we do not presume that all students are personally Christian, and we do not force you to become Christian. We respect your space to make your own decisions about personal belief.

No; there is a carefully curated set of courses, which we have put together in order to provide the best possible educational foundations. All students follow the same pathway, depending on their stream (Christian or non-Christian). However, if non-Christian students wish to pursue the Christian stream, they may.

We are increasingly making the Liberal Arts component applied to the individual study programs. For example, we attempt to help nursing students see how their Liberal Arts studies particularly equip them to be the best possible nurses. Some courses are more directly applicable than others, but all will help to provide a holistic education.

CURRICULUM

Each of our foundational areas is taught from a Christ-centered perspective. We attempt to teach these foundations in a way that maintains a constant connection both to the lives of the students, and to their educational majors. Our hope is that by providing rigorous Christ-centered foundations in these areas, we will be contributing to the formation of graduates who are not merely proficient, but truly good.

Core Subject

Christian Religion/World Religion: this course studies the Christian canon within the rubric of salvation history focusing on two particular themes: the kingdom and the covenant. The first half of lecture focuses on the Old Testament (OT) and the second half focuses on the New Testament, and particularly the fulfilment of the OT themes and promises in the person of Jesus Christ.

World Religions: this course will deal with the major religions, namely Islam, Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism, New Age, and Christianity. The main focus will be on the distinct and essential teachings of each religion. Without taking pluralist assumptions, it will also discuss some of the ways in which one can relate to people of other faiths like dialogue and possible cooperation for common good as citizens in a multi-religious nation.

Christian Worldview 1: the course consists of three divisions: Introduction to Christian Worldview, The Idea of God, and Biblical Anthropology. The Introductory material is about worldview in general term, including its definition, necessity, elements, and structure of its justification, and the distinctiveness of Christian worldview in special term. The essence of Christian Worldview lies on its dogmatic system that particularly bears significance in building and shaping Christian worldview, that is the idea of God.

Philosophy of Science: this course equips the students with ontological, epistemological and axiological dimension of science in the light of Christian Worldview. It is included in core knowledge that reflects philosophical presupposition of knowledge about God (the Creator), human self (knowing subject) and the world (nature and society as objects of knowledge).

Christian Worldview 2: This course is a study on Christian worldview on the topics of hamartiology (doctrine of sin), Christology (doctrine of Christ), soteriology (doctrine of salvation), and Pneumatology (doctrine of the holy spirit).

Ethics: this course is an introduction to Ethics—comprising metaethics, normative ethics, and applied ethics—with a view to help the students to understand and apply their knowledge of moral philosophy in making decisions. The study of ethics will involve critical assessment of various theories of ethics from the perspective and on the basis of the presuppositions of Reformed Theology.


Christian Worldview 3: This course is the continuation of the study on the redemptive work of the Holy Spirit within the church, up to anticipating things in the end times. In this course students will learn about biblical view on the Holy Spirit in relation to sanctification and glorification, through the church and the fruit of this aspect of His work for the renewal of all aspects of human life and culture. The Biblical teaching of the Last things (eschatology) will consummate the work of the Triune God in reversing the effect of sin and recreating man and all creation into His glorious and eternal Kingdom. This topic will introduce students with Christian interpretation of the nature of history and its meaning which is focused on the Triune God as the Alpha and Omega of history.

History of Thoughts: this course covers three main concepts: the conception of God, mankind, and the world which is essentially derived from God's will and sovereignty alone. Along with the development of human civilization, the thought of the three main things undergoes changes and developments that often vary from one period to another or between one school of thought and other schools of thought. Students will see with another perspective that continually underline that God is the Creator of history, the Owner of history, and the One who lives in history through Jesus Christ.

This course teaches the fundamentals of critical thinking & reasoning which is a distinctive sign of his/her dignity as God's image. It provides students with a wide range of cognitive skills and intellectual dispositions needed to effectively identify, analyse, and evaluate arguments and truth claims; to discover and overcome personal prejudices and biases; to formulate and present convincing reasons in support of conclusions; and to make reasonable and logical, smart decisions about what to believe and what to do for the glory of God.

The focus of this course is to instil nationalism and love of the homeland to the students, as well as an initial formal political education through the understanding and analysis of the values contained in the four pillars of our nation, namely Pancasila as an ideology; UUD 1945; National values derived from the values of the Unitary State of the Republic of Indonesia; and Bhinneka Tunggal Ika. Focusing on these four pillars of nationalism, this course is expected to foster the interest of the students (Christians and non-Christians alike) to articulate their role as good and responsible Indonesian citizens towards the community and ultimately to the NKRI.

The focus of this course is to provide knowledge and understanding of the importance of Pancasila as the foundation of the state, state ideology, nation character, national unifying tool, the form of civilization of the nation, which has long existed and lived in the habits and traditions of Indonesian society that is very tolerant, tolerant, diverse. In addition, it contains elements of transforming life in accordance with the vision of the FLA in the aspects of attitude, morality, and character formation based on the vision of the UPH is True Knowledge, Faith in Christ, and Godly Character is the ultimate goal of learning this course by using the Christian World Insight Biblically based on Reformed Theology by still appreciating the difference as God's creatures.

This course provides an understanding of making scientific paper. Students will be given lectures on effective sentence, paragraph, and statement so that they have a communication skill expressed in selected study program, profession, and in everyday life. This course is also designed for foreign students who learn in UPH or Indonesian students who cannot speak Bahasa Indonesia fluently, covering basic materials, such as pronouns, imperative words, sentences, etc.

This course prepares students to develop & strengthen mastery of English language skills in academic connections.

Major-elective Subject

Introduction to Natural Sciences: The course will present a foundation for understanding science from a Christian perspective (worldview), and from this vantage point will trace the various philosophical traditions surrounding the growth of science from the Early Modern period to the present. A variety of topics in the biological, chemical, and physical sciences will be used to illustrate the development of science, and in each case students will focus beyond the science itself to related philosophical and theological considerations.

Introduction to Social Sciences: this course provides an understanding of the basic principles, concepts, and theories of Sociology, Anthropology, Psychology, Political Science, Human Geography, and Economics, as the core of the Social Sciences. A holistic view of the person will be taken through the integrated approach of the Social Sciences through the lens of the Christian Faith. The frame for the course content can be found in the three themes of: our material lives; our connected lives; and our ordered lives.

Introduction to Aesthetics and Arts: this course introduces students with the basic concepts found in aesthetics and arts, some types of arts along with ways to appreciate them, and its pivotal role socially, economically, and culturally. Students will have the opportunity to explore their potential through various forms of arts, both as an individual and as a team.

This course introduces students to the elements of literature, to several themes and approaches that are popular with literature. These topics will be discussed, and seen through the Christian worldview. Students are invited to think of how literary works convey meaning, and see their close relationship with their existence as students and social members of society.
