Flexible Options To Fit Your Real Life
We developed our graduate programs with academic rigor, but we’ve made them easier to fit your day-to-day life. We offer two options to earn an advanced degree: On campus and online. Most of our on campus classes meet at night and on the occasional weekends. That means you can earn your degree, even if you work. And we’re located in Kirkland, so if you live or work on the Eastside, there is no 520 Bridge to cross. For those who would rather attend class anytime and anywhere, we offer a variety of graduate degrees that are 100% online.
Professors Who Teach And Inspire
Both our online and on-campus programs are taught by professors with years of real-world experience, many of which are still practicing professionals. Not only that, but these experts are passionate about investing in the professional development of their students. This means that they go above and beyond to connect with students, to give them opportunities in the field, and to set them up for success upon graduation.
A Foundation of Faith
All of our courses are taught from the perspective of the Christian Faith. This means that each program closely analyzes the ethics and morality of its industry of focus. This also means that our students learn what it looks like to be a Christian in their chosen field, and how to integrate their faith with their work.
