Majors & Programs

Majors, Minors, and Professional Programs

The CIU passion for scholarship goes beyond just mastering a discipline. Not only is every degree program taught from a biblical wordview, you are also taught the depths of the very Word of God. CIU students graduate with a professional major, AND a major in Bible.

Professional Major + Bible = Double Major

Wherever God places you in life, you'll be double-equipped to make an impact for Christ.
