Leadership Development & Christian Service Learning
Requirements will vary with each professional major/minor, but generally all students complete CSL during their freshman
and sophomore years. Students are strongly encouraged to plan a cross-cultural experience into their college experience.
Some will do so for credit, others will simply join a short-term mission project. For more information, please consult the
requirements listed under each program as “Practical Ministry Skills Development.” The following list represents the core
Leadership and Ministry Skills courses and ministry skills experiences taken by all students pursuing a bachelor’s degree.
Christian Service Learning I [2nd Semester, First Year]
Christian Service Learning II [1st Semester, Second Year]
Christian Service Learning III [2nd Semester, Second Year]
Discovering the Mission of God
Encountering Spiritual Formation
Professional Field Experience Requirements
Three hours of field experience serve as the minimal requirements for practical skill development for professional majors
and minors. Consult with your academic advisor.
Beyond the degree core requirements, each student working toward a bachelor’s degree selects a professional major and/or
minor. A student may declare up to one professional major and two professional minors; or a student may declare no
professional major and two professional minors. Courses applied to any part of the bachelor’s degree core may not also be
applied to the requirements for a professional major or minor. Each professional program has certain required foundational
courses, including practical skills courses, and may have designated electives. A course applied to the requirements of any
professional major/minor may also be applied to the requirements of a second minor if the course meets the requirements
of both programs.
*Courses are also available as part of the Honors Program. See the Education Opportunities section of this academic
catalog for more information.
