In the Christian Leadership Accelerated Degree Program at APU, students may complete their degree in 15 months. The accelerated 39-unit curriculum is concentrated into 61 weekly four-hour class sessions offered in a lock-step format that coordinates students’ class and work schedules and allows students to begin the program as it suits their schedules. For students’ convenience, all texts and materials are delivered directly to their classroom.
Courses are taught sequentially, and the rich diversity of experiences which students bring to the class result in lively discussions involving shared experiences. Because students stay with the same group throughout the course of the program, they develop a strong rapport with other group members who act as a support system through the completion of the degree. Many students find the networking opportunities that arise through participating in the program to be invaluable.
