EDUCATION

 

Our students receive a private university education. Through our church partnership program with Northwest University, CSM students earn a fully accredited AA or BA degree while enjoying the exclusive opportunities that only CSM has to offer. 

COURSE LOAD

Students will enroll in a full course load every semester, putting them on track to earn their Associate’s in 2 years or Bachelor’s in 4 years. Students will receive credits for work in a traditional classroom setting, online classes, and ministry internships at Canvas Church.  

INTIMATE CLASS SETTINGS

Small class sizes mean greater access to your professors, specialized attention, and full support on your course work.

TRANSFERABLE CREDITS

Best of all for students earning an AA degree through CSM, all credits will transfer to other major colleges and universities.

MINISTRY

It is amazing to see people, no matter where they are in their walk of faith, grow closer to God through weekly gatherings at Canvas Church.  As a student, you will receive a greater understanding of the Bible and ministry through weekly interactions with the Pastoral staff at Canvas. You also take part through your involvement in the areas of ministry that are best suited for you and your future.

A Ministry Internship through CSM will allow you to discover your talents through hands-on Christian leadership training, learning from the influential leaders at Canvas church, and by living out your calling through interning in an area you are passionate about, all while earning 3 free credit hours per semester! (Internship credits count towards general electives in any of our degree programs and these credits are FREE, which is about a $7,000 savings over the course of 4 years.)

As a student, you can choose from these
