The purpose of the Perspectives Program is to enrich the intellectual, cultural, and spiritual development of students beyond the classroom. The program allows students to develop new perspectives by providing them with opportunities to explore issues of current interest, deepen their awareness of the arts, learn about cultural activities they may not have considered otherwise, discover a variety of disciplines, strengthen their understanding of faith and its diversities, grow toward spiritual maturity, celebrate the achievements of others, and develop an appreciation for the concept of campus community.
The Perspectives Program includes a broad selection of events throughout the academic year, including worship experiences, lectures, convocations, plays, concerts and art exhibits. Perspectives is also held each Wednesday at 11:00 a.m. The public is invited to attend each Perspectives event.
In order to pass Perspectives, students must attend a minimum of five events during that semester. To satisfy the requirement for graduation, students must pass four semesters of Perspectives. Students seeking a degree from Chowan must enroll in Perspectives in their first semester of attendance and continue consecutive enrollment in Perspectives (PERS 101 , PERS 102 , PERS 103 , PERS 104 ) until they have fulfilled this graduation requirement. Transfer students may not be required to satisfy the full four-semester requirement. The Registrar’s Office will determine the Perspectives requirement for transfer students.
