Overview

The Leadership & Management degree completion program enables adult learners to be more effective Christ-like servant leaders and provides them the knowledge, attitudes, and skills to work in for-profit and non-profit organizations. The curriculum focuses on organizational and interpersonal skill development based on a Biblical worldview.

Program Learning Outcomes

The BA in Human Services is intended to graduate students who will:

  • Live faithfully by submitting to the authority of Scripture as a guide to Christian living.
  • Think Biblically by understanding and applying a redemptive hermeneutic in the work environment.
  • Grow intellectually by critically interacting with historical and contemporary theories of leadership and management, cultural and workplace diversity, worldviews, and ethics.
  • Improve professionally by demonstrating competencies in leading and managing in an organizational environment as a servant leader who embodies appreciation for diversity, values-based leadership, and growth-oriented leadership strategies.
  • Learn continually by developing a plan for lifelong learning where they live, work, and worship.
Program Delivery System

This program is offered both onsite and online for adult learners. All courses are six weeks long, with four courses offered each semester (fall and spring). This format allows students to focus one course at a time and complete the program in a timely manner. Time to completion is determined by the amount of transfer work a student might have already completed.
