Adult Learning At Grace Christian University – How An Online Degree Can Fit Into Your Life

Jul 3, 2023 | Blog

At Grace Christian University, we believe that you should have the tools you need to live out your calling, no matter where the Lord takes you in life. Because of this, our online programs are designed to work for busy adults. Whether you’re immersed in a full time job, serving in ministry, raising a family, or all of the above, we believe that adult learning should be not only possible, but that it should be enjoyable for busy people. Our online programs are a popular way that adults can further their education in order to be better prepared for life and ministry, even once the traditional “college years” are past.


Why further your education as an adult?

A lot of adults have thoughts and dreams about furthering their education, but easily dismiss these ideas due to the demands of adulthood – work, ministry, family, homeownership, and more. At Grace, however, we understand the importance of making further education accessible no matter your stage in life.

Whether you’ve never attended college and want to earn your first degree, or you hope to further your education with another degree or a more advanced degree, adult learning at the college level can open so many doors.

Many of our students attend our online classes as adults with plans to achieve a better position at their current job, switch to a more enjoyable career, earn a higher salary, or simply feel more equipped for serving in the corporate world or in ministry.

Balancing education, work, and life

Because they’re 100% online, our online classes are an incredibly flexible option for students. They can be completed on your schedule from the comfort of your home – no matter where you live. You’ll receive your rental books shipped directly to your home before each class begins.

In addition, online courses cut the cost of attending college and are more affordable than on-campus tuition. With an online degree, you can work through your degree as quickly or slowly as you want. Take one course per semester or take a handful at once – it’s all up to you and what fits into your life.
