START NOW NINE - ABSOLUTELY
Founded in 2000, Yorktown University is focused on academic disciplines in politics, American history, constitutional law, economics and culture. The university is a member of the Association of Christian Schools International and offers its degree programs solely via the Internet.
The University's motto, "Putting Western Civilization Back into Higher Education," reflects the commitment of the University's founding faculty to the search for truth of
the Western philosophic tradition.

first obligation must lie in comprehending ourselves as participants in Western civilization. Only then may we expect to understand other cultures.
