About Academics

Our undergraduate programs will equip you with the essential knowledge and experience necessary for you to step into and excel in your chosen career. Every major, every class, every day spent at CIU helps prepare you for a life lived from a biblical worldview, making an impact wherever you are and whatever you do. The same goes for our graduate and seminary programs, many of which are available 100% online.

Opportunities

Athletic and fitness opportunities are available to you at CIU as well as extracurricular activities and student organizations from the formal to the casual. That includes fun trips (we’re close to the mountains and the beach) and the chance to study abroad. Everything at CIU comes together to nurture students’ spiritual life and empower student life.
