1. Do I have to come to Pasadena to study with WCIU?

No. Our programs are designed for people who are established in their career with ministries and families. Therefore, we have no residency requirement.

However, we welcome visitors and make an excellent on-site library available to our students.

2. Can I take just a class or two at WCIU?

Students may take up to 12 hours of coursework without being admitted to one of our programs. We encourage all prospective students to take the introductory, three-credit “Foundations” course before applying for admission to WCIU in order to test their aptness for online coursework. 

3. Do you have a bachelor’s program?

WCIU does not offer a bachelor’s degree program.

4. How long does it take to complete your programs?

Our PhD Program requires a minimum of 3 years of study and a maximum of 10 years. Our MA Programs require a minimum of 2 years, with a maximum of 7 years.
