Throughout the program, each degree will allow students to gain practical knowledge through internships which count for up to three credit hours per semester. This amounts to 8-10 weekly hours of first hand leadership, ministry, and workplace experience.

Our program gives you a low-or no-debt path to earning a four-year accredited degree in a community setting, while also providing practical experience every semester, intentional leadership development, robust spiritual guidance, and the support of an on-site director.
