Selecting a Program
All colleges offer intellectual development and career development. You get that and more at CIU.
Our Christian university stresses spiritual formation based on Christian virtues, academic excellence with the Bible at the core, and vocational effectiveness with a ministry skills foundation.
That’s why we require a professional major and a major in Bible. It’s the best way to prepare the passionate heart for taking eternal values into the modern marketplace.
Our graduates leave here with a network of friends for life and an education that prepared them for their next step, whether it’s graduate school, the workplace, serving on a mission or helping to lead a congregation.
We offer 19 majors in the bachelor’s degree program and seven minors. Other programs such as the Associate of Arts and Bible Certificate are also options.
