Bachelor Degrees

Bachelor Degrees require a total of 120 credits of work. This is generally the first level of higher education after high school, and because of the large number of credits required, tends to provide a broad-based foundation in a number of subjects.

At CLU, after you take REN103 Communion with God,  you will be allowed to follow the leading of the Holy Spirit in choosing the courses you take for your degree, since He knows better than we do what knowledge and skills you will need to fulfill the plans He has for you. Therefore, you may find that you select courses from nearly every concentration, with one area in particular having your strongest interest and therefore drawing the most courses from it.

You may bring in up to 60 credits toward this degree through transcripts from other schools or documented life experience.
