Degrees

Students can work towards one of the four-year Bachelor’s or two-year Associate’s degrees in a range of Arts and Professional disciplines, depending upon the career path they’ve chosen. Cincinnati Christian University is a collection of Colleges and Schools and students pursue their degrees in the college or school that reflects their career interests.

Please note: The difference between a BA and a BS is the addition of biblical languages (Greek and/or Hebrew) to the BA degree whereas the BS degrees do not have biblical language requirements. The BM and BME degrees refer to Bachelor of Music and Bachelor of Music Education.
