This program will provide you with experiential learning to develop you as a whole person and help you cultivate the soft and hard skills that will enable you to thrive in whatever sphere God calls you into.
We offer five diverse concentrations, a robust network for internships, mentoring, and job placements along with support for launching new ventures.
