How to Select a Christian Graduate School
Many Christian schools offer the same degree programs and concentrations as schools not affiliated with a religion. Christian graduate programs are typically offered through private institutions and often have smaller student to teacher ratios, allowing for more individualized training.
Students interested in attending a Christian graduate school may want to consider the following:
- Denomination, style and philosophy may vary by school, so students may want to consider choosing a school that is in-line with both their personal belief preference and educational goals.
- Extracurricular activities typically include athletics, leadership seminars, and various clubs, but can also include ministry, public service and volunteer work, and seminary studies for interested students.
- Admissions policies at a Christian graduate school may include proof of completion of a bachelor's degree program, attendance of a graduate orientation session, letters of recommendation, and in some cases, GMAT scores sent directly from Pearson VUE.
