Surviving College as an Adult Student

Surviving College as an Adult Student

“I was beat down, burnt out, and spiritually dry…” The academic rigor of university classes can become exhausting, especially when you have a family, career, and ministry obligations. Prior to enrolling in the Degree Completion Program (DCP), I was a full time student at ACU, and I was not convinced that I would be able to continue to endure the stressful schedule that was required to get my degree. I was beat down, burnt out, and spiritually dry due to the schedule I was attempting to maintain. I was driving an hour each direction to campus, sitting in classes for 8 hours (twice a week), and completing 25-30 hours of homework a week. All of this was added to my attempts at being a good husband, father, and business owner. I constantly felt like I was trying to paddle up a river, and I was exhausted. “The DCP has been an Amazing Blessing…” Thankfully, I was informed by ACU that the DCP was created for adult individuals like myself, and that the program would be much more conducive to my busy life schedule. Fortunately, this has been true! The DCP has been an amazing blessing and opportunity for me because I am able to continue working diligently towards an academic goal, but do not have to sacrifice essential elements of my life in order to achieve it. “The DCP has Alleviated a lot of Stress from my Life…” Also, the DCP has been a great learning environment because the other students in the classes have life and work experiences that they bring into the classroom. This is important because...
Three Degree Programs to Begin in January

Three Degree Programs to Begin in January

This is an incredible time for the Degree Completion Program at Arizona Christian University! In January we are very excited about offering various areas of emphasis within the Business Administration degree. These emphases are: Healthcare Management, Homeland Security, Information Technology, Marketing, Non-Profit Management, Organizational Leadership, and Project Management. These emphases provide those interested in furthering, or starting, their career in any of these areas with the opportunity to focus in their preparation for the job market. This will allow the ACU Degree Completion students to become even more competitive in the marketplace. While the Business Administration areas of emphasis are exciting in their own right, that is not all that the Degree Completion Program is working on for January. For the first time, we are planning to offer all three degrees: Behavioral Health, Christian Ministries, and Business Administration. In the past, only two degrees have been offered at a time. Now, when we have enough students to enroll in a cohort, all of the participants will be able to start in January, regardless of the degree they are choosing. Knowing the Right Degree for You: Students graduating with a degree in Behavioral Health will be able to choose from a variety of job opportunities in the mental health community and will be prepared to pursue graduate work to lead into licensure in counseling. Christian Ministry graduates will be leaders prepared to function in either a church or non-profit organization. The curriculum within this degree program establishes a solid biblical foundation and Christian worldview. These are essential for effectiveness in a variety of ministries.

Serving Veterans with the Degree Completion Program

Serving Veterans with the Degree Completion Program

The Degree Completion Program at Arizona Christian University is ideal for veterans who are interested in utilizing available benefits to continue their college education. Often, the class schedule of one night a week is convenient for balancing work and family responsibilities. One of our students, Jonathan, is a veteran who is able to take advantage of services from Veteran Affairs and pursue a degree in Christian Ministries from ACU. Jonathan writes: I have been a student at ACU for the past couple of years. Leaving the traditional classes for the Degree Completion Program, has enabled me to obtain a Bachelor’s degree in the allotted time given from my VA benefits. In addition, the DCP has allowed my family a much better schedule for our everyday lives. It has allowed my wife more time for her studies, and for myself, more time with our children. Socially, I still see familiar faces on campus and have had the opportunity to meet new wonderful people in the DCP. Three classes down, several more ahead! If you’re a veteran who would like to finish your degree in Behavioral Health, Business Administration, or Christian Ministries you can apply for the Degree Completion Program and Veteran Benefits in three steps: 1.
