Overview of Degree Requirements

  1. Formal instruction is required to give you a depth and breadth of knowledge from which to operate.
  2. Practica are required to give you opportunity to work out what you are learning on the anvils of real life, in order to discover how to integrate knowledge. Taken throughout your educational process, these will help you gain a variety of experiences in many areas.

Little real-life learning is acquired without real-life experience. Therefore practica are critically important to the overall learning process.

It should be noted that CLU uses the nationally accepted “semester credit” measurement. Our courses are designed to be completed in 12 weeks rather than the normal 16-week semester.

What Programs of Study Are Available?

A full-time student takes four or five classes per 12-week quarter and three quarters per year. Most courses are worth three or four credits.

Part-time students usually take a minimum of four courses per year (i.e., one per quarter). If you choose to do the program on a part-time basis, taking only one or two courses per semester, it obviously will take you considerably longer to complete.

Since you are doing your study in your home, there is no need to rush through it. You may slow down and take it at a more relaxed pace, allowing the skills to sink deep into your heart, providing complete life transformation. You are urged to continue to minister in your community during your training years, thus giving you a real life outlet for what you are learning.

May You Have Largeness of Heart as You Train

Learning and growing often involve coming to grips with new ideas which challenge, expand and sometimes even counter previously-held ideas. It requires of the learner that he have largeness of heart to be able to embrace much.

“And God gave Solomon wisdom and understanding exceeding much, and largeness of heart, even as the sand that is on the seashore.” (1 Kings 4:29)

Jesus said, “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness [those with an openness to learn] for they shall be filled. Blessed are the meek [the humble] for they shall inherit the earth” (Matt. 5:6,5). Ask God for largeness of heart and meekness that you may receive all that He wants to give you.

Becoming a Berean

“These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, to see whether those things WERE SO.” (Acts 17:11, emphasis mine)

I can either try to prove things “so”, or I can try to prove them “not so”. If I try to prove them not so, I have taken the accuser's stance, which, of course, is satan's. Students at Christian Leadership University must be Bereans.

The Stretching of Growth Generally Produces Temporary Pain

When you begin a new exercise, there is generally some stretching and pain involved as you master it. This will also be true of your education. You should anticipate stretching to learn and discover new skills, as well as stretching to get more things done in a week, and being stretched financially as you invest in your future development. Do not shy away from this discomfort. Embrace it and seek it out. Make sure you are placing enough demand on your life so that you are indeed stretching and multiplying gifts as the Lord Jesus commanded in the parable of the talents. Know that if you let the stretching process do its work, it will make you a larger person. Let that vision take you courageously through the discomfort you temporarily feel. Seek direction on how to best respond to the stretching in a wise and godly manner.
