The heart of VU is its online certificate program, provided through a partnership with Kilns College (kilnscollege.org). We currently offer a track consisting of the following 5 classes:
Theological Foundations (Vincent Bacote)
Character, Virtue, and Wisdom in Leadership (AJ Swoboda)
Theology of Justice (Ken Wytsma)
Religious Cultures of the World (Michael Caba)
Christian Hospitality in an Age of Division (Brant Himes)
Select classes are offered each term, each involving online lectures, reading assignments, and on-campus or online group chat discussion meetings led by a qualified facilitator. All classes require registration and have a registration fee (plus costs for books and/or other supplementary materials). Limited need-based scholarships are available. Due to the online nature of these classes, students must also have high-speed internet access with quality video chat capabilities.
