The Seminary & School of Ministry (SSM) offers undergraduate majors related primarily to church ministry and graduate degrees related primarily to ministry leadership. At both levels, the faculty seeks to equip Great Commission Christians for ministry in multi-cultural communities. Our goal is to graduate church and para-church workers who have a heart for the world as well as cross-cultural workers who have a heart for the Church.
Efficiency, customization, flexibility, and accessibility are key components of the curricular offerings.
All undergraduate students earn a major in Bible as well as a professional ministry major. Students who have taken at least thirty semester hours of Bible, Theology, and Church History as part of their undergraduate studies qualify for a shortened program of studies at the graduate level (Program 2). Students who earn their undergraduate degree from CIU have the opportunity to earn a BA and an MA in five years (4 +1) or a BA and an MDiv in six years (4 + 2).
