Ohio Christian University offers multiple missional degree offerings that can highlight or accommodate the career path of Christ-minded students. Our BA in Global Missions is available for those determined to fulfill the great commission on a full-time basis. It emphasizes Scriptural interpretation and properly contextualizing the gospel in cross-cultural settings. We train our students with a focus on preparing missionaries to counter contemporary challenges in whatever culture they find themselves, including being able to contrast Christianity with other prominent worldviews.

A Global Missions Minor Program is also available at OCU for students majoring in other fields but who still wish to cultivate their missional acumen into a professional reality. Students can also study to obtain a professional certificate in Global Missions, encompassing four core Global Missions courses. This helps professionals expand their capabilities and become effective mission-focused workers in a foreign environment.

All of our Missions programs at OCU are available 100% online enabling working professionals to study and expand their accredited capabilities alongside other working adults who share in their passion for missions. We also offer a Christ-centered campus experience for students looking for traditional residential education.
