Indiana Wesleyan University’s Bachelor of Science with a major in Christian Education degree will equip you to serve as a staff member of a local church or in a para-church organization such as Youth for Christ or InterVarsity Christian Fellowship. We have an excellent placement record for our graduates in full-time positions in churches and other organizations. Some of our graduates serve in church-related schools, Christian camps, and mission agencies in the United States and around the globe. Many students double major in Children’s Ministries or Adolescent Ministries or another area of study to augment their training. If you are interested in the teaching ministries of the church, this major is for you.
The IWU Christian Education major will launch you into a life of world-changing service, providing experiential learning opportunities with a specific focus on practical ministry theory as well as skills.
A minor in Christian Education consists of 24 credit hours of carefully selected courses to enable you to augment your major degree with a solid foundation in Christian education. If you add a Christian Education minor to another ministry major, this may qualify you to serve in the area of Christian education as well as in your major area of ministry studies.
Some students also choose to earn an Associate of Science degree (a two-year degree) for quick entry into the workforce and a foundation for further education.
