The First Year Prelude Program introduces students to the mission and community of Calvin College. This six-week course is a gateway and integral component of IDIS W50 (Developing a Christian Mind) and serves as a prerequisite to the Cross-Cultural Engagement (CCE) core requirement.
Prelude is a one-credit course that all first year students take during their first semester. Prelude provides students with a common intellectual experience and a rudimentary introduction to several important aspects of Calvin’s community: a Christian worldview, cultural discernment, responsible freedom, justice, and vocation.
