At SOLAS the Programs we wish to offer have underlying philosophies and well anchored in theories and concepts that enable a deep understanding and critical utilization of mind to facilitate application of knowledge acquired in contemporary society. Our required courses on applied hermeneutics, leadership and languages, inure to the proper understanding of texts and their meanings within specific contexts; acquisition of strategic leadership skills to play such roles and acquire global citizenship. The utilization of effective methods to achieve optimum results: sizable class numbers, face to face lectures, engagement with students, independent research and presentations in our ultra modern purpose designed lecture rooms allow for excellent interaction.
