INSTRUCTORS WHO CARE

You’re more than just a name. Our professors and staff believe in the importance of investing in each student at Grace.

Why choose a Dual Degree?

Many of our students visit campus and fall in love with our community. We know we are a small university and that is what makes us special. Students pursuing a Dual Degree are choosing to engage deeply with our spiritual core and pursue a degree beyond what we offer in-house.

Choose Your Unique Career Path

A biblically informed education takes a student’s natural talents, gifts, and passions and prepares them to serve effectively and immediately. At Grace Christian University we offer students many unique paths to pursue their calling.

 

Grace Christian University partners with Cornerstone University and Davenport University to expand Grace students’ degree options beyond what is offered solely at Grace. Students have the opportunity to set themselves apart by earning two degrees (one from Grace and one from the partner institution) when they complete their undergraduate studies.

Major at Grace
