College of Arts and Sciences

Dean: Dr. Mark L. Hammond
The undergraduate College is the custodian of the liberal arts core curriculum. This General College Curriculum (GCC) is the integrated, interdisciplinary education, which is the hallmark of the liberal arts. It is of medieval European origin; traditionally at the completion of the two-year post-secondary period, European colleges awarded the baccalaureate, which signified the recipientís entry into educated society; students then went to university for the study of the law, medicine, or theology. The tradition was imported to America, where the concept of "major" or specialized study was added as the traditional curriculum evolved away from its European roots. In colonial America, all elementary, middle, and secondary education was conducted under the auspices of the Christian church. In the nineteenth century, population growth and the process of secularization of society stimulated the initiation and rapid expansion of public education to insure the continuation of a literate culture, the fundamental basis of democratic government. At the beginning of the twentieth century, only twenty percent of college students were in land-grant colleges and public universities; the rest were in private, often church-related colleges and schools. By the end of the twentieth century, the proportions were reversed, with only twenty percent of college students in private and/or church-related schools. The College of Arts and Sciences of Campbell University is one of those remaining church-related schools.

The central thread in the history of the University is the development of the College and its curriculum. Founded in 1887 as an academy, the institution has experienced no interruption in the work of its faculty. Until 1925, it was Buieís Creek Academy; from then until 1963, it was a well-respected junior college. Beginning with the class of 1963, Campbell College became a four-year senior institution; then, with the graduation of the first class from the Norman Adrian Wiggins School of Law, Campbell became a university. Thus, the College of Arts and Sciences evolved as the successor undergraduate College within the larger body of the University. Its graduates span the globe, serving in a wide variety of fields and callings. The purpose of the University is derived from that of the College; succinctly stated, it is to educate and encourage its students of all ages to think, live, and serve others in a forthright, Christian way. The success of this College as an exemplar of excellence in education in a Christian community in a secularized society is a credit to the vision of its founder, Rev. J. A. Campbell, and to the achievements of his successor presidents, Leslie Campbell, Norman A. Wiggins, and Jerry M. Wallace.

Majors , Minors, and Pre-Professional Programs
Each Campbell College student is required to declare a major by the beginning of the junior year, but has the option not to select a minor field of study. Pre-professional programs include pre-law, pre-pharmacy, pre-medical/dental, and pre-seminary, as well as a pre-engineering program approved by North Carolina State University. Class sizes vary from eighty in science lectures to twenty-four in science labs to thirty-five in humanities lectures to twenty-five in freshman English to less than fifteen in senior humanities seminars.

Faculty of the College
Along with its students, the Collegeís greatest asset is its faculty. Some of the senior members have served the school for four decades; they impart not only academic knowledge, but also wisdom to their students and institutional memory to their colleagues. Over eighty percent of the faculty have the highest available degree in their teaching discipline; that percentage is growing as the former junior college faculty retire.  

The Norman Adrian Wiggins School of Law

Dean: Willis P. Whichard
In July of 1975, following extended feasibility studies, the General Board of the North Carolina Baptist State Convention approved establishment of the Campbell University School of Law. In August of 1976, the charter class of 97 students was admitted.

The University Trustees named the law school in 1987 in honor of the founding president.

The decision to establish the School of Law was not lightly taken; it was made with the firm conviction that the Campbell University School of Law and its graduates would help meet needs presently unmet, particularly in the southeastern United States.

This School of Law was not designed to be one that duplicates the emphasis and programs of existing law schools. Rather, its intention was to formulate a unique program to educate a particular type of lawyer for whom there is a special and continuing need.

Campbell educates lawyers who are prepared from the outset of their careers to serve their communities with legal skill and ethical and intellectual leadership, in the noblest tradition of the counselor.

The Campbell University School of Law is purposely small, with a tradition of admitting approximately 120 students per class. While its academic program is rigorous, its rural village setting and commitment to human values are designed to enhance the likelihood of success as a student and as a lawyer in any setting in which one chooses to practice.

The Lundy-Fetterman School of Business

Dean: Dr. Ben Hawkins
In October 1982, the establishment of the Lundy-Fetterman School of Business was announced. The School was named for the late Burrows T. and Mabel L. Lundy, generous benefactors to the University and strong supporters of Free Enterprise, as well as for Lewis and Annabelle Fetterman, son-in-law and daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Lundy.

The Lundy-Fetterman School of Business is a community of scholars and professionals who are committed to developing students as responsible individuals through an emphasis on professional education, entrepreneurial attitudes, Christian values, and practical experiences. The mission of the School of Business, at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, is to engage students in a learning process that provides a comprehensive professional education, instills a passion for life-long learning, creates a commitment to service, and examines ethical behavior in the business environment. Graduates of the Lundy-Fetterman School of Business are prepared for careers in a rapidly changing business environment. They are aware of the significance of technology in business organizations, the value of a global perspective in planning, the need for an understanding of cultural diversity, and the process of continuous improvement in shaping business operations.  

The Lundy-Fetterman School of Business strives to be recognized as a premier business school known for its free enterprise based curriculum, distinctive academic programs, practical work experiences, and values-based entrepreneurial emphasis.  

The actions and activities of the faculty and staff are based on a core of values held in the School of Business. Seven specific belief statements form the foundation for these core values.  

  1. The creation of a caring family-type environment is essential to the personalized style of education provided to students.
  2. An entrepreneurial free enterprise focus is important to all aspects of the academic programs.
  3. Programs of study on all campuses will provide for academic excellence.
  4. Practical work experiences are an important part of a holistic educational process in the School of Business.
  5. An understanding of Christian values provides a solid foundation for a life-long commitment to service in business or professional environments.
  6. A strong liberal arts academic foundation is a critical component of a true professional education.
  7. Faculty and staff should model a passion for learning, an understanding of the global environment, and the values of integrity, mutual respect, and accountability in personal and professional relationships.

Academic and Professional Programs

Divinity School

Dean: Dr. Michael G. Cogdill
The Campbell University Divinity School officially opened as the sixth school of Campbell University in January 1996. The Divinity School was not designed to duplicate programs in existing divinity schools and seminaries. While the school provides the best of classic theological education, the Divinity School adds dimensions of spiritual formation and professional mentoring needed to equip ministers.  The Divinity School maintains its strong liberal arts heritage by offering undergraduate majors built upon the General College Curriculum of the College of Arts and Sciences through its Religion and Philosophy Department. These undergraduate majors, which lead to the B.A. degree, are: Religion, Biblical Studies, Theology, and Christian History. Successful completion of any of the undergraduate majors in Religion with distinction can lead to advanced standing in the graduate program of the Divinity School.

In addition to undergraduate majors in Religion, the Divinity School offers the Master of Divinity, the Master of Arts in Christian Education, and the Doctor of Ministry degrees. Certificate programs are offered in Preschool and Childrenís Ministries, Biblical Studies, and Hispanic Congregational Leadership. Information describing these graduate theological degrees and the certificate programs is available on the website and in separate bulletins.

Objectives of the Campbell University Divinity School:
A. To offer required courses in the General College Curriculum designed to acquaint students with the faith of the Bible as revealed in Jesus Christ and with their Judeo-Christian and Western philosophical heritage.

B. To offer a Bachelor of Arts degree with majors in religion, biblical studies, theology, and Christian history as pre-divinity school and/or pre-vocational preparation for those entering church-related vocations or otherwise interested in majoring in Religion.

C. To offer the Master of Divinity, Master of Arts in Christian Education, and Doctor of Ministry degrees for those students desiring to earn graduate theological degrees and pursue careers in professional ministry.

D. To offer undergraduate academic minors in religion for those students who have more personal and academic interest in the above areas but have chosen other undergraduate majors.

Master of Divinity (M.Div.)
This degree program is for persons desiring a comprehensive and balanced theological education in the content and practice of local church and church-related ministry. The primary focus is on pastoral ministries, with additional concentrations available in Christian education, counseling/chaplaincy, missions and evangelism, church music and worship, historical and theological studies, and biblical studies. Persons desiring to prepare for other ministries, such as teaching or denominational work, should concentrate in the field most closely related to the area of interest and consult a faculty adviser for specialized elective courses. The Master of Divinity degree can be earned in three years of full-time study. M.Div. graduates with distinction are able to apply for Ph.D. studies in other institutions.

Master of Arts in Christian Education (M.A.C.E.)
This degree program is for persons desiring basic theological and educational preparation for local church and church-related ministry. It provides the same required studies as the Master of Divinity, but limits vocational and specialized studies specifically to preparation for educational staff positions, lay or bivocational ministry, Bible teaching and Christian development ministries, or Christian social ministries. Persons desiring additional specialization and/or broader preparation for vocational ministry may switch to the Master of Divinity program at the beginning of any term. The Master of Arts in Christian Education  degree can be earned in two years of full-time study.

Doctor of Ministry (D.Min.)
The Doctor of Ministry program is designed to prepare qualified candidates already trained and involved in ministry to render spiritual, ecclesiastical, and vocational Christian leadership at the highest level of competence in local churches and church-related ministries.  The Doctor of Ministry degree can be earned in three years of full-time study.
