Online Undergraduate Degree Program

Our online program focuses on three key pillars — reading Scripture, understanding your own cultural competency around Scripture and cultivating your own spiritual formation. At ACU, we believe the best kind of spiritual formation comes from those who are tending to their own spiritual life well.
