Distinctively CCU

Your choice to study at Cincinnati Christian University will introduce you to an educational experience unlike any other.

It’s an education that’s BIBLICAL. Unlike most colleges and universities, CCU provides academics in an atmosphere of faith. All CCU undergraduate students, regardless of their major, enroll in biblical and theological courses. Our students are prepared to engage an ever-changing world with a foundation of faith. In every class, a Christian worldview carries the conversation. The faculty is comprised of women and men who believe in God and hold a high view of the Scriptures. Campus culture reveals a rhythm that encourages this: classes that begin with prayer; chapel services that unite hearts in praise; spiritual development groups that provide opportunities for personal reflection.

It’s an education that’s URBAN. Unlike most Christian colleges, CCU is nestled in the middle of a city. Our location, perched atop a hill overlooking downtown Cincinnati, provides opportunities for our students to learn, to play, and to minister. The city facilitates collaboration among diverse cultural entities. Students can access music, athletic, and entertainment venues with ease. And there are endless possibilities for CCU students to pursue issues of justice. The city of Cincinnati is an exceptional learning lab where you can pursue a Christian lifestyle.

It’s an education that’s MISSIONAL. Unlike many institutions in the world today, CCU produces students with a higher purpose. Not only are students held to high academic standards, they are prepared to change the world for Christ. Faculty, staff, and coaches mentor students on their path towards Christian maturation. Humility is learned through service opportunities; global vision is honed by diverse interactions; leadership is sharpened by leveraging teachable moments. CCU prepares students for a life of glorifying the Lord with their talents.
