CAS in Intercultural Leadership

Not enough time for a complete degree program? How about a Certificate of Advanced Studies on the graduate level? With short on campus periods (five days/course) or fully online?

** may be substituted with elective if successfully completed before

Lifelong learning opportunities allow you to continuously acquire skills for your area of ministry. Certificates of Advanced Studies (CAS) serve exactly this purpose. This CAS consists of four courses on the graduate level (12 cr.hrs.) and is therefore ideally suited to help you:

  • master current challenges through specialized training.
  • deepen your knowledge and expand your skills without having to commit to a complete degree program.
  • get a qualified introduction to a topic while opening up options for further studies.

Completed CAS courses can be applied towards a master’s degree at CIU Korntal or transferred to other universities.
