Every degree is different and will equip you with unique skills. Each degree may offer a variety of spiritual formation and basic Christian leadership skills along with specific classes pertaining to your degree. In addition to taking classes, you will receive one-on-one local mentorship as well as help in matching you with an internship during or after your studies. While all classes are taken online, you are not alone in your education. Your classes are interactive with other students through online forums and WCH also has a variety of student fellowships and events throughout the year.
