ABSTRACT
The essay contends that an Augustinian culture of education can offer a sense of purpose for interdisciplinary honors programs. The author cites that St. Augustine's intellectual journey in his "Confessions" depicts Christian education which is different from the modern notions of education. He uses the example of the honors program at Palm Beach Atlantic University (PBAU), a non-sectarian Christian institution in West Palm Beach, Florida, and discusses formative education and related topics.
