The College of Humanities and Social Sciences' general education curriculum provides the groundwork upon which all Grand Canyon University's undergraduate students' educational experiences are built. Skills in critical thinking, problem solving, integration of faith and discipline, global awareness, effective communication, and servant leadership are introduced and developed through introductory courses in composition, communication and information literacy, philosophy, history, psychology, sociology, mathematics, and science.


GCU also offers several undergraduate and graduate Christian studies degrees. These programs equip learners to lead as Christians in their areas of influence, be they secular, religious, professional or personal.
