Omnibus I Primary Books SP 2014

Omnibus is a Latin term meaning “all encompassing.” Combining the disciplines of history, theology and literature has students grow in their appreciation of the unity of all knowledge, and all the material is taught through a biblical, Christian worldview.

• Learn Ancient World History, Theology and Ancient Literature from many experts in each subject area
• Tour the actual locations where this history occurred
• Be challenged by dialectic questions and exercises to propel you beyond just learning facts
• Enjoy the convenience of studying anywhere you have internet access, at a pace that works for you
• Learn ALL within the context of a completely Christian worldview

Omnibus I Primary focuses on works of the ancient world culminating in the first century. Students learn to read and appreciate the great books in light of the truth of Scripture. Diploma students completing the course will be given a credit in English: World Ancient Literature I. Diploma students completing the Omnibus I Primary and the Omnibus I Secondary courses during the same year will be given three credits for the two courses—one each in History: World Ancient History I, English: World Ancient Literature I, and Religion: Doctrine and Theology I.

In this self-paced format, the video lessons lead the student through the study of the great works, with the emphasis on ideas, not simply information. Through interactive exercises, games, expert interviews and reading assignments, students will gain mastery of facts as well as deep understanding of broader concepts while studying many of the Great Books.
